Lillian Harris, a Clark Atlanta University doctoral student, has been named by the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities to the first class of HBCU All-Stars. She is one of 75 undergraduate, graduate and professional students, representing 62 HBCUs. The All-Stars were selected from a pool of 445 applicants based on accomplishments in academics, leadership and civic engagement. Next year, the HBCU All-Stars will serve as ambassadors of the White House Initiative by providing outreach and communication with their fellow students about the value of education and the initiative as a networking resource. In addition, the 45 female and 30 male All-Stars will participate in regional events and web chats. They also will have opportunities to engage with other scholars to showcase individual and collective talent across the HBCU community.
