Project Morry Alumni Named Fulbright Scholar

The success of our students continues beyond their college graduation. We are thrilled to report that Tyrone Fleurizard, Project Morry alumnus from Bridgeport (2007-2014) and current senior at Wingate University, has been selected as a 2018-2019 Fulbright Scholar! Tyrone will study the intersection of race, ethnicity, and education in Malaysia.

The Fulbright U.S. Student Program is one of the most prestigious scholarship programs for collegians in the United States. The program offers opportunities for students and young professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, university teaching, and primary and secondary school teaching worldwide. Fulbright U.S. Student alumni populate a range of professions and include ambassadors, members of Congress, judges, heads of corporations, university presidents, journalists, artists, professors, and teachers.

In addition, he has been accepted to a PhD graduate program at Boston College with a full scholarship. Tyrone exemplifies Project Morry’s values of leadership, positive core values, network of support, and teamwork. We are proud to be a part of his journey!
