Victoria Harrison, a senior psychology major, was among 73 students named a 2016 White House Initiative on HBCUs (WHIHBCUs) All-Star today. Victoria was chosen from a pool of more than 300 students from 24 states, the District of Columbia, Ghana, Nigeria, and the Virgin Islands. The All-Stars, comprised of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, are being recognized for their accomplishments in academics, leadership, and civic engagement. Harrison, who is a native of Tampa, Fla. also serves as B-CU’s Miss UNCF, president of the B-CU Pinky Promise Club, member of the National Society of Leadership & Success and the American Psychology Association, among others.
As an HBCU All-Star, Harrison is tasked with implementing outreach and communication with her fellow students about the value of education and the role of the initiative as a networking resource. Through social media and her relationships with community-based organizations, Victoria will share promising and proven practices that support opportunities for all young people to achieve their educational and career potential. She will travel to Washington, D.C. to represent B-CU at the annual WHIHBCUs National Conference this fall and will also attend other events and participate in national calls and web chats with the White House.
