Tuesday, April 2nd, 2024

Savannah State University (SSU) faculty and administrators, led by Interim President Cynthia Alexander, recently visited dual enrollment students at Savannah Early College High School (SECHS).

During the visit, President Alexander’s team, which included Dr. Stephanie Alexander from the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, SSU Director of Admissions Brian Dawsey, and Professional Advisor Jan’a Prater, spoke with SECHS students, faculty and staff and the students showed President Alexander some of their recent projects. President Alexander thanked Dr. Christina Conners for her leadership at Savannah Early College and her continued commitment to the dual enrollment program with SSU. She also shared with students what opportunities await them if they continue their college careers at SSU.

“It was a delight to meet these students who might soon join the long ranks of successful SSU alumni,” President Alexander said. “As we continue to grow our dual enrollment program, the goal is to interact with the students to learn more about their goals and objectives, to energize them and share with them the benefits of being engaged in dual enrollment.”

SECHS and SSU have a long-standing partnership allowing high school students to earn college credit while still in high school. Since 2004, the dual enrollment program has helped numerous SECHS students complete their college degrees in less time. This partnership is the largest of all dual enrollment programs offered at SSU, with 56 SECHS students currently participating.
