Best Unsung East Austin Visionary

Joseph T. McMillan, President of Huston-Tillotson College

As president of Austin's oldest college for the past 10 years, Joseph T. McMillan has unshakeable faith in HT's bright future, not to mention a humble attitude which drives him to serve the needs of Eastside. His afterschool learning programs have helped hundreds of kids stay off the streets and make college a realization. His open arms to the Eastside community have also made the college a cultural hub for African-Americans.
