NBA Star Chris Paul Enrolls at HBCU - Winston-Salem State University!

This is a dope story...
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul continues to make plays outside the basketball court, as he enrolled in Winston Salem State University to help its students make a difference by assisting them to the polls.
“We are providing transportation to HBCU students to get the polls so we are working on that now,” the 10-time All-Star revealed in an appearance on ESPN’s First Take on Friday.
Paul also took to Twitter to share the news.
Paul, who also serves as the President of the National Basketball Players Association, also shared that he has been taking classes in the institution.
Apart from his desire to guide young minds into voting for the upcoming elections, CP3 revealed that he chose the lesser-known black institution since he holds in dear in his heart.
While Paul could just as easily enroll in other distinguished universities — perhaps with his alma mater Wake Forest — the 35-year-old Thunder chose WSSU since both his parents, Robin and Chris, attended the same school. Technically, Paul is still eligible to return to Wake Forest as a student since he left the institution back in his sophomore year in 2005.
The 4-time All-NBA First Team member, however, understands he could make an even bigger difference if he offers his resources to a smaller institution with a less privileged population. The opportunity to walk the same halls that his parents used to is also a big plus for Paul.
While he continues to be one of the best pure point guards in the NBA today, Paul’s leadership outside the basketball court is indeed something to marvel at.
