The White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities has selected 83 students as its 2015 HBCU All-Stars in recognition of their academic achievement, leadership and civic engagement.

The HBCU All-Stars will provide outreach and communication with other students about the value of education as well as promote the role of the WHIHBCU as a resource. More than 450 students submitted applications that included transcripts, resumes, essays and recommendations in hope of being named an HBCU All-Star.

β€œWe are confident these impressive students will help the White House Initiative on HBCUs meaningfully engage with students, showcase their talent and advance our agenda to advance academic excellence at HBCUs,” said Ivory A. Toldson, WHIHBCU acting executive director.
