GNB Update

The weekend is just around the corner...Here's the news...

A southwest Georgia university gets two visiting fellows for the new academic year. Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus announced that Myrtle Habersham (photo on left), and Clarice Davis were appointed to the fellowships at the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving earlier this week. Habersham is the associate director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency's Office of Management Planning, while Davis is a community outreach director in the Alabama public health system. Their appointments will begin later this month.

Columbus State University is opening a new bookstore on its campus in downtown Columbus. CSU officials say they're opening it to better serve students that study fine or performing arts. The new facility opens Monday.

A new year and a new era for an Albany private school. The Albany Herald reports that Deerfield-Windsor School started its 46th year of operation this morning. Dave Davies is the new headmaster for Deerfield-Windsor. He takes over for W.T. Henry, who retired after 20 years at the school. The new academic year at DWS started with more than 800 students. That's about the same amount as last year.
