Fresh from her victory as the recently appointed Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Howard University, Dr. Tashni-Ann Dubroy, currently President of Shaw University, has been named Female President of the Year by the HBCU Digest. She will take up her new position at Howard in October 2017.
“I am greatly humbled and honored to be receiving this award,” said Dr. Dubroy. “I offer my sincerest gratitude to the HBCU Digest and its founding editor, Mr. Jarrett Carter, as well as the awards committee.”
From her arrival in the USA as a 17-year old immigrant from Jamaica to her current position at Shaw as one of the country’s youngest college leaders, Dr. Dubroy’s career in academia has been on a consistent and shining ascent. Her personal story is a lesson in dedication, persistence and a fierce will to overcome adversity.
