Montgomery College Professor Tiffany Thames Copeland received a Fulbright U.S. Scholarship award in communications from the U.S. Department of State and the Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
During the 2022-2023 school year, she will research “African Americans Respond to Ghana’s Mediated Call: Digital Media & The Year of Return.”
She is the college’s 12th Fulbright scholar.
“Now is the time to go beyond the expectations that others set for us, as well the oftentimes limiting expectations that we set for ourselves,” Thames Copeland said. “We all have the capability of making magic happen in our lives, and by doing this we help to make the world into a better and brighter place.”
