Biography

Henry K. Musoma was born and raised in Zambia, a country in Southern Africa. He attended high school in Zambia and Mozambique, then moved to the United States to pursue higher education. He received a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Texas A&M University, and a doctorate from Texas Christian University.

His multi-national background has afforded him significant insight into national and international global perspectives on leadership and leadership development.

He enjoys teaching young people about leadership, and has traveled each summer since 2014 with a group of Regents’ Scholars (first-generation college students) to Dubai, South Africa, and Zambia. The “African Excellence” trip is sponsored by Phillips 66. To show appreciation, Mays named Phillips 66 the first Corporate Partner of the Year in 2016.

Gates Inspiration Award from Texas A&M to recognize his role in establishing the Regent’s Ambassador Program (RAP), which offers freshmen and sophomore Regents’ Scholars personal and professional leadership development opportunities.
