Howard University senior, Joel Rhone has been awarded a 2016 Marshall Scholarship. Rhone, an English major from Fullerton, California, is an honor student and former president of the Sterling Allen Brown English Society at Howard. He is one of 32 winners of the scholarship. Rhone will research African-American literature, particularly its impact on, and depiction of, the African-American church. Rhone represents the second candidate to have ever been chosen from Howard University. The first was Anthony Hendricks, (BA, ’07) in 2007.
“This is an awesome end to my Howard experience,” Rhone said. “It is almost intimating how much opportunity the Marshall scholarship provides, yet it reaffirms the value of the Humanities, the value of my research, and the power of the Humanities in strengthening the relationship between our two countries. It is an opportunity that promises many others in my future. “
