Student Success - HBCU All-Stars
Two Winston-Salem State University students were named among top students selected as members of the 2015 White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (WHIHBCU) HBCU All-Stars.
Mona Zahir and Kyle Brown, were among 83 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students recently selected as members of the 2015 White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (WHIHBCU) HBCU All-Stars.
The All-Stars were selected from more than 450 students who submitted applications representing 70 HBCUs. Students were selected based on their accomplishments in academics, leadership, and civic engagement. Zahir, a junior from Charlotte, NC, and Brown, a senior from Kinston, NC, are both political science majors.
Over the course of the year, the HBCU All-Stars will serve as ambassadors of the WHIHBCUs by providing outreach and communication with their fellow students about the value of education and the role of the Initiative as a networking resource.
The All-Stars participated in this year’s White House HBCU Week Conference, September 20-22 in Washington, DC, as well as in other various national events, web chats with Initiative staff and professionals from a range of disciplines. Through social media and their relationships with community-based organizations, the All-Stars will share promising and proven practices that support opportunities for all young people to achieve their educational and career potential.
