Savannah State University (SSU) student Alicia Montgomery has been chosen as a White House HBCU All-Star. Montgomery, a sophomore business management major from Atlanta, is the president of SSU’s National Honor Society and of Sigma Alpha Pi.
She is the third student from Savannah State to be selected for the White House initiative since the program’s first class joined the HBCU conference in 2014.
During the academic year, Montgomery and other HBCU All-Stars will serve as ambassadors to their communities by providing outreach opportunities and communicating with other students about the value of both education and the program as a networking opportunity.
Using social media, relationships with community-based organizations, and sessions with industry professionals, the students will share proven practices that support opportunities for all young people to achieve their educational and career potential.
They will also participate in the fall White House HBCU Week Conference, national and regional events, and webinars with initiative staff and other professionals on a range of disciplines.
