AT&T is helping the University of North Georgia (UNG) make a difference in the lives of more than 115 area high school students for whom English is not their primary language. Through a $25,000 grant, the company will help ensure that first generation non-English native speaking students receive academic enrichment support that will help them to succeed in high school and beyond. Now entering its 20th year, Steps to College (S2C) is a summer for-credit program designed to meet the unique needs of bilingual or multilingual area high school students who are also English learners. “Every child has the potential to succeed and is a vital part of Georgia’s future,” said state Senator Steve Gooch (R-Dahlonega). “I am so proud of UNG and the administrators, teachers and volunteers who are doing so much to ensure that these students are not left behind but are prepared to pursue and accomplish their dreams.”
