ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State is getting a $10,000 grant to continue giving students practical experience solving environmental problems.

Through a partnership with Procter and Gamble, eight students participated in the Global Sustainability Journalism Project in China over the summer.

They also studied eco-friendly aspects of the Albany P&G plant and teamed up with Chinese students to develop news stories on sustainability.

"Also broaden my horizons that maybe this is something that we need to push more and that with my major in journalism I can study and work harder to help push that further," said ASU student Reginald Daniels.

"When they begin to develop their career in journalism and if they are equip with knowledge and expertise in these areas it will empower them," said ASU Mass Communications Associate Professor Jianchuan Zhou. 

Zhou plans to make this an annual project for students.
