Jenkins on WALB News
Sandra Jenkins, director of the Fort Stewart Georgia campus location, was interviewed by WALB News (Channel 10 in Albany, Georgia) about the 1st annual Early County High School (ECHS) Alumni weekend.
Jenkins worked with Fredrick Stamper and other ECHS alumni to create the fundraising and fellowship weekend to support college scholarships for first-generation students from low-income families within the community.
Events will include a Meet and Greet, Pep Rally / Tailgate, Masquerade Ball and Sunday Worship. The project is particularly close to Jenkins’ commitment to increase access and persistence for the most under-represented populations.
