DENMARK -- The White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities recently selected the second Voorhees College student as an “HBCU All-Star.”

Voorhees student Terrianna McCullough was selected from an application pool of more than 400 students from HBCUs across the United States to become a 2017 White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities Student Ambassador. To qualify as an “HBCU All-Star,” students must display excellence in academics and community involvement through the submission of their college transcripts, resume, an essay and letters of recommendation.

“Being the second Voorhees College representative is rewarding. I feel that this accomplishment is one that will advance me as an undergraduate and as the queen-elect of the institution. Voorhees College has been good to me these last four years and I want to highlight all the great things happening here with others,” McCullough said.

McCullough is a senior mass communications major from Lamar. She is Miss Voorhees College-elect for the 2017-18 academic year and a member of the W. Franklin Evans Honors College, Lady Tigers softball team and the Theta Epsilon Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.

In addition, she serves as a peer educator with the Hope Health HIV/AIDS Awareness project, social media manager for the mass communications club and a freshman orientation leader.

As a student ambassador, McCullough will be attending an HBCU conference in Arlington, Virginia, Sept. 17-19.
