As part of East Georgia State College’s efforts to serve as the model affordable, innovative, high-quality rural access institution in the United States, the college is hosting their Student Leadership Program for the second year.
The Student Leadership Program is a collaboration between EGSC and the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service to provide an opportunity for students to further develop the skills and leadership qualities needed to become effective campus and community leaders. The program was made available to all full-time students who attend any of EGSC’s three campuses and who are in good academic standing. Applicants had to compose an essay describing how they would benefit from this student leadership program. Students were chosen to further their leadership education through this free program, which began in September and will run through April of 2020, when a formal graduation ceremony will be held.
Participants in the Student Leadership Program are Joshua Smalley, La’Tia Berry, Sanjay Narsee, Tim’Mya Sanders, Sara Bell, Cynthia Ruiz, Precious Coleman, Terkeitha Moye, Bryan Martinez, De’Shawn Smith, Ciera Curtis, LaVonna Pounds, Alaylla Watkins, Jeffery Wyles, Ikia Furse-Samuels, Marquis Epps, Martise Epps, Tiyana Grimes, Aliyah O’Neal, Kamyja Ross, Madyson Lowe and Jenna Kirchner.
This year’s peer mentors for the program are Ambernique Spicer, Brandon Browder, Kathryn Cox, Megan Bryant, Kierstan Leeks and Tayla Scott.
