ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Hundreds of students and faculty at Albany State University were honored Friday for their good grades and hard work.

Albany State University held their honors day convocation to honor the best and the brightest. The Albany State University Concert Chorale sang and students heard from ASU President Dr. Everette Freeman and Dr. Lee Formwalt, executive director of the Albany Civil Rights Museum. Dr. Formwalt encouraged student not to just study their major subjects, but to become well rounded students.

"If they're going to be citizens of this global society they need to know more than just what their major field of study is, they need to know what's going on in the world. If they're going to be good citizens they need to be keeping up with what's going on in the political world. They need to be following the debates on health care," said Dr. Lee Formwalt, Albany Civil Rights Institute Exec. Director.

Among the seven scholarships awarded Friday, Juanita Hosley received the first annual Donyetta Drake Memorial Scholarship. Drake a former A-S-U student was brutally murdered in 1995.
