When Tashmay Jones, a senior at Bethune-Cookman University, isn’t marching alongside the Marching Wildcats, she’s anticipating her May 2018 Spring graduation. Originally, Tashmay dreamed of becoming a dentist but decided to major in chemistry with aspirations of becoming a college professor.

“I chose to major in a relatively unpopular field, but I did so that I could learn something new. I don’t like the feeling I get when I don’t understand something, so rather than avoiding it, I dove right in to learn more about it,” Tashmay said. While at B-CU Tashmay encountered some true supporters.

“Being at Bethune-Cookman University allowed me to work under Dr. Vishwa Trivedi, which opened many doors. Dr. Cobb-Abdullah allowed me to be one of her interns my first year in college, which opened me up to the world of academic research,” she said.

Tashmay learned recently that she was admitted to the University of Miami graduate program in Fall 2018. She was awarded a full-tuition scholarship valued at $41,800 per year, renewable for up to five years.
