This will be the fourth Winter Classic appearance for a team from Morehouse College. The team this year is the full complement of six undergrad students, mostly Computer Science majors, but also a Software Engineer in the mix. Over the past few years, Morehouse has introduced an HPC class and, under the leadership of Dr. Watkins, is developing a school HPC lab. Great work!

"Hey my name is Menelik Haqq, I am a junior computer science major attending Morehouse College. In the future, I want to pursue a career in software engineering or data science."
"Hello, I'm Unique McElwain, a senior software engineering major from Harlem, NY. In the future, I plan on becoming a project manager because I gravitate toward the business aspect of engineering slightly more than the technical."
"Greetings! My name is Thailer Ragland and I am a graduating senior physics major mathematics minor at Morehouse College from Memphis, TN. My personal hobbies include drawing, painting, and skateboarding. I also have technical interests in physics, aviation, and space exploration. After graduation, I hope to attend graduate school for either Applied Physics or Aerospace Engineering. I hope to one day work within the space industry and use my technical background to contribute towards multiplanetary exploration. I am a student pilot and I also have a background in physics research."
"Greetings you all! My name is Jonah; I am from North Florida and currently attend Morehouse College a junior majoring in computer science with a minor in Chinese. I have a wide variety of interests ranging from sports, culinary arts, mentoring, music creation, and so much more.
