Mike-Minix_head.pngReceiving the Tom Joyner Foundation Hercules Scholarship will allow me to advance toward my career goals of becoming a producer and professional jazz saxophonist. It will aid my drive as a young entrepreneur who wants to own his own studio and become a media production specialist.

Music is something that has always been a part of my life from playing at my church to hearing my mom sing, and especially my dad who always listened to a wide variety of music, to my uncle who plays and inspired me to play the saxophone.

Norfolk State has a great music program. I currently play in the NSU Jazz Ensemble and I am a proud alumnus of the Norfolk State University Spartan Legion Band.

NSU has been and will continue to be instrumental in helping me achieve my goals.
