Mr. Womack studied Computer Science & Mathematics and hails from Tampa, FL, where he attended Wharton High School.

Why Morehouse?

Initially, the draw was scholarship money, but upon visiting admitted students’ weekend I couldn’t shake the feeling that this institution was meant for me.


More about an interesting achievement:

This may sound abstract, but I’m just proud of my journey. Everyone at Morehouse has their own personal journey, and I’m just ecstatic that I found and stuck to mine. Everyone’s journey is different and this took some time to get comfortable with, but once I did I was happy and successful in my endeavors.
