ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany State University student is headed to Capitol Hill.
Senior Chelsea Basley is one of 73 HBCU all-stars selected through an initiative started by President Obama to get feedback from college students.
Basley plans to use the platform to bring awareness to mental health issues.
"I was extremely excited because of number one, I've always been devoted to Albany State University once I came here. And so to be recognized for hard work and to have another way to serve my campus, it was very exciting and an honor," explained Basley.
Basley will attend the HBCU Week Conference from October 23 through October 25 in Washington, DC.
