ALBANY, Ga. -- Henry "Hank" Huckaby, the new chancellor of the University System of Georgia, will visit Albany State University on Wednesday to serve as the keynote speaker for the annual Faculty-Staff Conference.

"We are delighted that Mr. Huckaby accepted our invitation to speak at the Faculty-Staff Conference," ASU President Everette J. Freeman said. "We're looking forward to hearing what our new chancellor has to say as we prepare to launch a new academic year."

Huckaby, who became chancellor on July 1, is scheduled to speak at 10:20 a.m. on the first day of the three-day conference, which will be held in the ACAD Auditorium on the ASU campus.
