2012 MEETING OF THE HILLIARD FAMILY & CURRENT SCHOLARS
On September 6, 2012, the Hilliard family returned to Prairie View A&M, eager to meet the three current Hilliard Scholars in person. The first scholarship recipient, Jasmine Casnel, graduated on time in May 2012 with her B.A. in Mass Communication, and the Scholars still on The Hill continue to impress.
