How about that for excellence? Ezekiel, tell us all about it.

– Thank you for the intro, Desi. My college journey is more odd than usual. I was fortunate enough to start college my junior and senior years of high school. I was able to reside and take all college classes at the age of 16. And when it came time to find a college, I wanted somewhere where I truly felt like I belonged. From the instant I arrived on Alabama A&M’s campus, I knew I had found my home. The vibrant energy with the band playing and people line dancing was everything I wanted. Everywhere I looked, I was met with warm smiles. It was this welcoming atmosphere that drew me in and ultimately led me to become a University Echo Student Ambassador. I’m passionate about showcasing our campus not just for its lively atmosphere, but also for the presence of like-minded individuals who share my background and determination for success. One precursor for success would be the Alabama A&M University Honors Program. The amount of knowledge I have gained from being in the program is immeasurable. Its core principles are scholarship, leadership, and service, and it has instilled in me how to be an effective leader in my community. Through different resume building events, corporate-style interviews, scholarship opportunities, and being able to serve my community through various events, the Honors Program has helped craft me into the man that I am today. I can attest that the university truly lives up to its slogan, “Start here, go anywhere.” Alabama A&M has given me experiences and opportunities that I would’ve not found anywhere else. This illustrious university has a special place in my heart. As always, go Bulldogs. Back to you, Desi.

– What an impressive program. Ezekiel, we know you achieve even greater heights through the AAMU Honors program. Its members definitely live by the program motto, “Excellence and scholarship, leadership and service.” Thanks, Ezekiel.
