December 14, 2006 Albany Tech Press Release
Albany -- Twenty year old Sheneka Bryant, of Randolph County, was chosen to represent Albany Technical College at the EAGLE Leadership Institute in February 2007. The Leadership Institute recognizes and honors students who demonstrated superior achievement in adult literacy classes and programs.
More than 55,000 students attend adult literacy class in Georgia. EAGLE is the first statewide program in the nation that rewards excellence among these students. The program is designed to promote awareness of educational opportunities that are available in communities across the state and to encourage people to take advantage of adult literacy programs.
"A student must be nominated by his or her teacher to compete for the EAGLE award," said Linda Coston, Adult Literacy Director at Albany Technical College. "Then the nominated students must present three to five minute speeches to a panel of judges and be interviewed. In making their decision, the judges consider character, attitude, leadership skills, attendance, personal appearance, enthusiasm and community involvement."
Bryant will receive an all-expense paid trip to Atlanta to attend an EAGLE Leadership Institute, where she will attend leadership and character building workshops.
"I am honored to represent Albany Tech as the EAGLE award recipient," said Bryant. "My instructor told us that if you can read it, you can do it. Those powerful words inspired me to achieve my GED. I hope to attend the French Culinary Institute in New York City, and I plan to own a French bakery and café one day."
