Episcopal churches in the Brunswick and the Golden Isles have come together to show their support for College of Coastal Georgia’s African-American Male Initiative (AAMI).
Representatives from the different churches recently presented college president Dr. Michelle Johnston with a check to support the efforts of the program. AAMI is an initiative of the University System of Georgia and can be found at its many institutions. Its purpose is to help African-American males, who are first-time college students, have a successful transition to the college environment and set them up for academic and social success.
