ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Friday wrapped up Founder's Week at Albany State University, honoring Joseph Winthrop Holley.

John Culbreath served as the guest speaker for this year's Founders Day Convocation.

He earned a bachelor's degree in French from Albany State College and went on to get his doctorate in education from the University of Georgia.

Culbreath said a lot of his success came with the help of others and he wants to encourage people to work together.

"I want us to be a place, not just Albany State University but Albany and Southwest Georgia where everybody helps at least one other person. A small task for everyone who is listening or looking," said Culbreath. 

Founders Week commemorates 115 years of heritage.
