East Georgia State College President Bob Boehmer is pleased to announce the appointment of Jordyn Nail as interim director of EGSC Augusta effective 1/12/2015.
Nail, a native of Swainsboro, is a 2009 graduate of Georgia Southern University with a Bachelors Degree in Math. While at GSU, she was a valuable four – year member of the Eagles Softball team. Nail then began her teaching and coaching career at Swainsboro High School. She became a member of the EGSC faculty as a math instructor and Lady Bobcats softball coach in 2010. The establishment of the new Academic Center for Excellence offered the opportunity for Nail to transition as the Director of Learning Support in Spring, 2012. She earned her Master’s Degree in Math from Georgia Southern in May, 2014.
According to Nail, “A key element of our current mission is to successfully prepare students for transfer to other USG institutions. In Augusta, we extend educational opportunities for students in the region, contribute to workforce development, and increase the rate of academic success among students. I am excited and thankful for the opportunity to further EGSC's mission and build upon the success of Dr. Jeff Edgens. I especially look forward to collaborating with Georgia Regents University, Assistant Director of EGSC Augusta, Nick Kelch, and Director of EGSC Statesboro, Caroline McMillian, to continue the growth and development of EGSC Augusta and its impact on Richmond and the surrounding counties.”
Dr. Jeff Edgens, the first director of EGSC Augusta, is moving to an administrative position with Thomas University in Thomasville. He has played a vital role in the growth of the EGSC program in Augusta since it began in 2013.
EGSC Augusta students are able to use GRU classrooms on the Summerville campus. They are issued a Georgia Regents University ID card which entitles them to use the GRU library, recreation center and some of the food services that Georgia Regents offers.
After 30 semester hours and 2.3 GPA, students may transfer to Georgia Regents University. To make the transfer process as seamless as possible, transfer sessions are hosted to aid with the move to GRU. This option gives students the best of both worlds.
