Community of Believers in the News: Early College featured on WABE News and Georgia Public Broadcasting
Early College Associate Director Dr. Tene Davis was recently featured on WABE News during a segment about Google and the National Park Foundation’s new coding initiative for young women. Dr. Tene Davis, who spearheads the Crim Center Girls Who Code Club, was brought on as a though leader to share the importance of gender diversity in tech and computer science. Davis said, ” there aren’t a lot of girls [or] women in the field of computer science.” Programs such as the Crim Center’s Girls Who Code Club help provide access to computer science education, creating new pathways for young women to enter the field.
Early College also participated in Georgia Public Broadcasting’s “Stop the Drop” campaign to help encourage students to stay in school. The students were required to submit a PSA video to participate in the campaign, which was also a competition.
