The HBCU All-Stars is a program of the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities which aims to strengthen HBCUs and their students via education and career programs. As an All-Star, Shelton is recognized for his leadership, academics, and involvement at SSU. He teams up with other HBCU students to promote scholarships and internships on behalf of the Initiative. And creates campus-wide projects, like gun violence prevention campaigns and LGBT safe spaces.
Through the All-Star program, Shelton has had incredible opportunities: networking with university presidents, vice presidents, and deans; attending a speech by Vice President Joe Biden. And tuning into President Obama’s conference call on student healthcare.
