Albany- College applications are what these Dougherty County high school students are rushing to finish. With their first semester of college less than a year away, students like Brian Davis say Albany State University may become their home for the next four years.
"It's a small institution, and it's easy to get to know the people." Brian is star student at Dougherty High School. He has always excelled academically, and he wants to continue as an ASU ram. Davis adds, "I was just determined from day one and my parents pushed me to get good grades and excel." Current ASU students, like Charles Doxley are also taking time to mentor prospective students and make sure they feel at home.
Doxley says, "I'm trying to show everyone that academics is the key to success and if you work hard, there's rewards and benefits." Senior ,Arkesia Jenkins, says Albany State University isn't her first choice because she wants to be in a bigger city where she says she will have more internship opportunities. Jenkins adds, "Albany is a small town, so you won't get as many internships as in Atlanta with CNN and the Centers for Disease Control."
ASU president, Portia Holmes-Shields, says it is important to recruit the best and the brightest, and they are willing to do what it takes to make that happen. Shields adds, "I think ASU prepares walking miracles.
She also says miracles will continue to happen if these students join the Albany State University family.
Shields also says they hope the majority of the honor students choose to attend ASU, and she says if they do, there is no doubt they will have a good chance of becoming presidential scholars.
