My name is Innocent Inyama and I am originally from Nigeria, West Africa. I immigrated to the United States in 1996. I am married with three beautiful children, two boys and a girl. I am a graduate of Social Work, Morgan state University. Upon graduating from the program, I was honored to receive the James Ashby award of excellence for the male student with the highest ranking G.P.A. 2011/2012 academic year. 

I am pleased by this honor as it has motivated me to go further with my education. I have been accepted for the graduate program in Social Work, Morgan State University. I am committed to furthering my education. I am so grateful for the Ashby family for this award and it will continue to be in my memory forever.
