The program featured keynote speaker Kim Hunter-Reed, one of the first black scholars who went to LSU in 1985.
Micheal Milton, a third year engineering student has been honored in this program for three years, and he says it's all about hard work.
"It makes me feel good, especially since its my third time, so im a junior and i've gone every year. So it shows that hard work pays off and you get honored for it, so that's a good thing." said Milton
