SLP Sophomores Meet Georgia’s Lt. Governor during Summer College and Career Trip

Thu, September 18, 2014

Georgia Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle met with 70 SLP sophomores at the Statehouse in Atlanta this summer. The visit came while the SLP students were on a two-day trip to Statesboro and Atlanta. Lt. Gov. Cagle thanked them for their willingness to develop the skills they need to be successful in school and in their careers. He told them they are the future of Georgia’s workforce and congratulated them on their involvement in the program.

“It was a great honor for our SLP students to meet Lt. Gov. Cagle,” said Chris Nowicki, Community Investment specialist, Gulfstream. “He took the time to make everyone feel special.”

Twelve teachers and community advisors accompanied the students on the trip in July. The group toured the Georgia capitol and took part in campus tours of Georgia Southern University, Kennesaw State University and Georgia Piedmont Technical College.

“The goal of the trip was to give the students the opportunity to explore three college campuses and learn about admission requirements and financial aid offerings,” said Nowicki. Deciding where to attend college is a big decision. “You don’t know if a college is a good fit until you visit,” said Nowicki. “The trip gave SLP students an idea of what’s available to them and what they need to do in the classroom to make college a reality.”
