Charles Terrell Hart Making Family, Friends and Community Proud!

Charles Terrell Hart is the only son of Ricky and Brenda Hart. He  has an older sister, Dominique Jones, who has a Ph.D in Pharmacy from MCPHS University School of Pharmacy.

Charles and Dominique grew up in the William and Jefferson Street  area.

A graduate of Olmsted Public Schools, Charles’ dream was to go to Canisius High School. Once at Canisius he excelled academically and was a member of the National Honor Society. He also was on the varsity volleyball and basketball teams. 

After high school he went to the University at Buffalo for one year. He then transferred to Morehouse College, an HBCU in Atlanta, Georgia.

His second year there he won the Oprah Winfrey Scholarship and recently  he had the opportunity to meet Oprah during the historical opening of Tyler Perry’s  Studio. 

In his years at Morehouse, he has excelled. In 2018 he interned at Washington University in Seattle. In 2019 he interned at the United States Naval Research Center in Washington, D.C. That was after spending six weeks in Africa! Next year he will spend the summer at Exxon Mobile in Houston, Texas.

The sky’s the limit for this young man! Congratulations Charles!
