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.
