William Gibson, a sophomore political science major from Charlotte, is one of 62 students nationwide selected to the 2017-18 class of White House HBCU All-Stars. He is one of seven North Carolina students selected for the honor.
Gibson was recognized in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 18. HBCU All-Stars are appointed for one year to serve as ambassadors for the White House Initiative on Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
