Ekhorose Aghahowa

A Stillman College student is among 25 to be honored as part of the Rising Future Makers Showcase, presented by ATT&T Dream in Black. Stillman’s Ekhorose Aghahowa is a junior business administration major who aspires to be a philanthropist.

The award recognizes students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) who positively influence their communities, according to AT&T.

Aghahowa serves as the Student Garden Volunteer Manager on campus, aiming to create healthy, sustainable eating habits within her community. She hopes for a future where nutritious food choices are critical to underserved communities’ culture.

According to the official announcement, “each student will receive $5,000 presented by AT&T 5G, a 5G-enabled tablet with one year of AT&T service, among other gifts. They will also gain access to professional workshop opportunities, including mentoring sessions with AT&T executives to grow their network and further their professional development.”

This annual program empowers the next generation of innovators, while fostering diversity and inclusion in the ever-evolving tech landscape.

The Rising Future Makers Showcase reflects AT&T’s long time support of HBCUs, continued commitment to empowering diverse communities and dedicating resources that foster economic growth while helping bridge the digital divide, which disproportionately impacts communities of color.


Aghahowa was selected among more than 1,000 applicants.
