New Junior Achievement Partnership
Georgia Southern is planning a partnership with Junior Achievement of Georgia (JA) that could bring thousands of middle school students to the Armstrong Campus every year. The project calls for retrofitting the Student Recreation Center into a JA Discovery Center. The center would educate middle schoolers in such areas as career readiness, personal finance and entrepreneurship.
Georgia Southern President Kyle Marrero said the project aligns with the University’s mission, values and strategic plan. He explained it would offer experiential and employment opportunities for Armstrong students and help make the Armstrong Campus a destination for the coastal region.
