White House Initiative on HBCUs Names Oakwood University student as an All-Star (614 hits)

The White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) announced last week its 2017 HBCU All-Stars at the Annual Summit hosted at the White House on September 18, 2017. Among the 62 All-Stars (pictured) is Oakwood student Jujuan Sanders.

These distinguished undergraduate and graduate students recognized for their outstanding accomplishments in scholarship, leadership, and civic engagement. This year's class of All-Stars are strong examples of the talent that HBCUs cultivate and excellent ambassadors of their respective institutions.

The All-Stars are appointed for one year to serve as ambassadors of the White House Initiative on HBCUs. The All-Stars provide outreach opportunities and communications to their fellow students about the value of education and the Initiative as a networking resource. Selected from a wide-range of applicants, the All-Stars came highly recommended from HBCU administrators and proved impressive beyond their resumes, transcripts and thorough applications.

"As a proud HBCU graduate, I am personally thrilled to congratulate this year's impressive class of HBCU All-Stars," said Omarosa Manigault, Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison.
