SGSC receives funding for African-American Male Initiative program

South Georgia State College (SGSC) has received a $7,000 award from the University System of Georgia (USG) to fund the 2019-2020 African-American Male Initiative program for its students. The USG AAMI’s goal is to significantly increase the graduation rates and the number of degrees conferred upon African-American males at SGSC. Participants will experience cultural events and educational trips in addition to workshops designed to cover topics of relevance to African-American males.

“The activities and opportunities will fall in line with our college’s vision to prepare and graduate students who will accomplish their career goals and lead the region to economic success,” said Rachard Lofton, SGSC AAMI Program Coordinator.
