On Thursday 2nd December the Georgia Southern SIFE team had its second SIFE Business Advisory Board meeting chaired by Barry Westbrooks (GM, Walmart Distribution Center).  We are once again grateful to our BAB members who were able to attend the meeting Lynn Lilly (The Lilly Group LLC); Rachel Edwards (Wright & Edwards P.C.); and, Kate Gary (Statesboro-Bulloch County Chamber of Commerce).

At the BAB the SIFE students presented their semester’s President’s report, the Treasurer’s report, projects progress reports and the meeting discussed recruitment and retention of students.  The meeting also discussed and set plans for the SIFE students to compete at the SIFE regional competition in Atlanta during April 2011.

The board received a detailed report on the GED program where SIFE students are tutoring Ogeechee Technical College staff who were unable to to complete their high school courses.

About the GED project

Since 2007, the Physical Plant has been running a GED program for staff members who were unable to complete their high school courses.  SIFE has taken the initiative to extend our voluntary services and to aid in the long-term improvement of the program.  Success skills is one of the many criteria that guides SIFE projects, by becoming involved with the staff members here on campus we can not only satisfy that criteria, but we help each individual by providing them with the necessary tools they will need to be successful.
