A $25,000 grant from AT&T, through the University of Georgia Foundation, helps Thomson High School retain a special college advising position for another year.
The Georgia College Advising Corps, which is affiliated with the National College Advising Corps, provides recent college graduates to serve in a college advising role to students to just a handful of schools. This marks the fourth year the program is represented at Thomson High School. For a third straight year LaShon Legget will be at THS helping students pursue acceptance into college.
Originally the Georgia College Advising Corps placed Leggett, a University of Georgia graduate, in Thomson for two years.
