Voorhees student attends the HBCU ambassador conference in Washington
September 18, 2017
Miss Voorhees College 2017 - 2018, Terrianna Mccullough shares thoughts on her experience as an HBCU All-Star with the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
"My experience in Washington has been both educational and rewarding. Flying for the first time was nerve wrecking but worth it after meeting all these people, who are dedicated and hard -working within higher education. Being an HBCU All-Star with the White House Initiative is an opportunity I wish everyone could experience and be a part of. I will continue to make the best of my experience and invest in my future while I am here,” McCullough said.
During the conference, McCullough will attend sessions on how to successfully implement student initiatives on campus. She will meet with representatives from the United States Office of Personnel Management and Homeland Security, National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Peace Corps, Viacom, BET, and Warner Brothers.
In addition, McCullough has the opportunity to meet and hear presentations from former Donald Trump’s “Apprentice” competitor, Omarosa, the secretary of education Betsy DeVos, and representatives from Aspire TV.
Upon her return from Washington, McCullough will be officially crowned as Miss Voorhees College 2017-2018 and begin implementing her platform and initiatives.
