GSC Students, Faculty Assist Local Family
Posted on Thursday, September 06, 2018
Gordon State College students, including members of AAMI, Brother to Brother, and Residence Life, recently came together to help a local family in need.
Residence Life Director Shalanna Banks, a former DFACS employee, received a phone call that a social worker who is also a foster parent had to move due to an unexpected medical emergency.
Banks received the call in the evening and put together a team of seven students and two faculty members by 11 the next morning.
Erica Tallent, a Towaliga Circuit Accountability Court employee and GSC alumna, and her husband, Marty, were amazed by the turnout and very grateful for the assistance.
