UGA 'Road Dawgs' to speak with CHS students about post-secondary opportunities


Road Dawgs is an event hosted by UGA students and representatives designed to help inform high school students of their college and career options after high school, including attending UGA. An upcoming Road Dawgs presentation will take place on Monday, March 11, 2019, in the CHS gym during 4th block from 1:45 - 3:08 p.m.

Only selected classes will join the UGA presentation; UGA set the limit at 200 students, and the students who will participate at CHS will be sophomore and junior students specifically.

According to an article published in 2018 by UGA Today, "Road Dawgs is in its third year and continues to expand across the state. In the last three years, UGA students visited a total of 26 schools." A few of the schools the Road Dawgs visited in 2018 included four schools in Atlanta, one in Columbus, and one in Stewart County. The visits to Columbus and Stewart County were the first overnight trips the students took for the Road Dawgs.

A few students that were highlighted include Karmen Askew, a senior at Stewart County High School, and Jaquelyne Mencias a freshman at Maynard Holbrook Jackson High School in Atlanta. Both of the students were able to hear what UGA have to offer at the Road Dawgs presentation.

According to UGA Today, "more than 70 UGA students gave up their spring breaks to visit six schools around Atlanta, Columbus, and Stewart County from March 12-15 to share their college experiences and answer questions."
