Tyler earned multiple scholarships, most notably one from The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and The Florida-Georgia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation, an organization that partners with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to significantly increase the numbers of baccalaureate, master’s degree and Ph.D. recipients in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). In addition, Tony juggled his roles as a member of his school’s Green Coalition, Senator then Attorney General for the Student Government Association, and Committee and Bylaws Chairman for his fraternity Kappa Alpha Psi, while being a Dean’s List Scholar.
Both Tyler and Tony graduated from Florida A&M with their bachelor’s degrees in 2016. The brothers are now planning to continue their academic journey in graduate school. Tony plans to pursue medicine with a specialization in trauma surgery and Tyler plans to focus his master’s studies on environmental policy and management and has his eyes set on a dual degree J.D./Ph.D. program in environmental science and law at the University of Miami for the fall of 2018.
