ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany State University presented scholarships to some of the best and brightest incoming freshmen on Wednesday.

Four incoming students accepted four-year presidential scholarships.

Two others accepted Foundation Scholarships awarded the first year of college.

They did not award the scholarships the past few years because of financial restraints, but now they're back.

"We've opened it back up again and we're giving the best and the brightest a chance to vie for presidential scholarships," said Dr. Everette J. Freeman, ASU President.

"I'm just so honored that ASU would consider me worthy of being a scholarship recipient and I'm ready to give back to Albany State University," said James Little, Monroe High Pres. Scholarship.

All the students earned high school GPA's of 3.8 or better and SAT scores greater than 1,100.
