Senior, Gage Waddell, who will be attending Georgia Southwestern State University in the fall as a political science major, has received the GSW Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship and has been accepted into the prestigious President Jimmy Carter Leadership Program at GSW. The four-year Carter Leadership Program also includes a scholarship and consists of two pathways, an Undergraduate Research Track and a Service Track, that exemplify Carter’s lifetime of leadership in education, politics and community service. “Because this leadership program is endorsed by President Carter himself, it was very important to GSW to select only the finest students from those who applied,” said Lynda Lee Purvis, GSW vice president emerita for Academic Affairs and program director. “I have always had a close attachment to Georgia Southwestern, and I am honored to be associated with their new leadership program,” said President Carter (about the inaugural program in 2019). “They invested in me as a student over 75 years ago, and I want to do the same for the future leaders in our region.”
