SGSC receives $2,950 grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety

South Georgia State College (SGSC) is once again joining forces with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (GOHS) to combat alcohol abuse, including underage drinking and impaired driving.

Through GOHS, South Georgia State College has received a $2,950 grant to participate in the Georgia Young Adult Program.  Designed for colleges and universities in the state, the Georgia Young Adult Program focuses on peer education in order to promote and bring awareness to highway safety issues including alcohol education, alcohol abuse prevention, impaired driving, underage drinking, and other destructive decisions. 

The long-term goal of the program is to create safer, healthier campus environments.  SGSC will use this peer education grant to help educate SGSC students on the detriments to drinking and driving and other components of alcohol misuse.  The grant runs from Oct. 1, 2013 – Sept. 30, 2014.
