College of Education Graduate Students Elected to National Association

Two College of Education graduate students were recently elected to leadership positions in the National Black Graduate Student Association (NBGSA). John Nwosu, who is in the master’s in counselor education program, was elected president. Jessica James, a higher education administration master’s student, was elected treasurer.

NBGSA is a non-profit, student-run organization that works to increase the number of minority students in higher education. The group raises awareness on campuses and within communities, and serves as a support group and platform for students “to excel socially and academically.”

“Joining NBGSA was one of the best experiences of my life,” said James. “I have been able to network with people all over the country and represent Georgia Southern and the College of Education. But most importantly, I was able to see people who look like me excelling in what they do,” she added.
