2017 HBCU All-Stars
Two St. Philip’s College students have been nominated to undertake a high-profile year of public service aimed at helping White House and Department of Education leadership promote academic excellence at historically black colleges around the nation.
The title of the training program is the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities HBCU All-Stars program. After applying in April and May, several students at the college were each screened and then recognized for accomplishments in academics, leadership and civic engagement.
Passion Williams-Toomer (kinesiology) and college Title III administrative assistant Monica Aguilar (political science, pictured) are the college's 2018 season All-Star nominees from St. Philip’s College. If selected, their initial formal training occurs during the 2017 Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week Conference Sept. 17-19 in Washington, D.C. Trained All-Stars for the 2017-2018 academic season will give back by promoting education when they return to their campuses from the conference where they will learn in depth of leadership duties that include service as a role model for college completion with support and resources that they can share with others nationwide.
All-Stars nominees at St. Philip’s College traditionally learn if they have been selected by The White House as All-Stars in the fall, just before college classes begin, explained Dr. Angela McPherson Williams, the college’s director of student success.
