MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Alabama State University has been the subject of controversy lately over unproven allegations surrounding unnamed contracts.

Recent unfounded rumors have clouded the focus on all the great things accomplished by ASU, which has been serving this state since 1867.

A miraculous transformation has occurred at ASU, and according to a study commissioned by Alabama State University, the institution has a $1 billion dollar annual impact on the state's economy.

We all know about the successful opening of the New ASU Stadium, but what about our high-demand, degree programs and global partnerships around the world; and the many student-centered successes – the new library, classrooms, student center and residence halls?

These facts should dominate our conversations.

ASU's positive transformation didn't begin in September 2012 with one person – it was a collaboration of dreams that were turned into reality by many people over many years.

Let's let all the facts come in before we tear down one of Alabama's greatest success stories…Alabama State University.
