EAGLE Academy Updates

New EAGLE Academy logo revealed

Georgia Southern University’s EAGLE Academy is launching a new look this summer. Housed in the College of Education, the inclusive post-secondary education program recently rebranded with a logo that captures the spirit of the mission of the program–Equal Access to Gainful Learning and Employment (EAGLE).

“Students enrolled in EAGLE Academy are an inspiration,” said Nicholas Roshkind, program director. “While you may not visibly see their challenges, these students attend classes and work diligently in internship opportunities just like any other student on campus.”

Created by the University’s graphic design team, the new logo captures the success of students enrolled in the Academy with the feeling of ‘soaring’ in the Eagle Nation.

“When I look at the logo, I now feel the inspiration and success of the EAGLE Academy students reflected.”

A look forward into fall 2022

In the fall, three students are returning for their final year in the program. Henry will continue to become an entrepreneur by taking a self-leadership course and volunteering with the Office of Admissions. Malcolm will be working at the Recreational Activity Center (RAC) on the Statesboro Campus while taking coaching courses to help him pursue a career in sports leadership. Douglas will continue interning with the University’s Information Technology (IT) Services focusing on cyber security and troubleshooting while also taking IT courses. 

EAGLE Academy will also welcome five new students in the fall. Kyleigh, Brian, Alex, Dale and Ephraim are all excited to start their journeys here at EAGLE Academy and continue their education while learning skills to help them with employment opportunities.

Spring 2022 Alumnus Max is also returning to the University as a full-time student pursuing an associate’s degree in science and will also be serving as a peer mentor for the Academy for incoming students. 

To stay up-to-date with the students and happenings, follow EAGLE Academy on Facebook and Instagram.
