CSU Staff Presents at GEAR UP Georgia Statewide Partners Conference

Julio Llanos, Associate Athletic Director for Internal Operations, recently presented at the GEAR UP Georgia Statewide Partners Conference in Savannah, Georgia.

Llanos's workshop, "Balancing Athletics and Academics to Increase College Scholarship Opportunities for GEAR UP Georgia students," focused on information regarding proper academic eligibility student advising, Clearninghouse registering, and college coach outreaching techniques.

“I would like to thank Randalette Williams, CSU, and the USG for allowing me to attend and present at the GEAR UP Statewide Conference,” said Llanos. “It was a great opportunity to learn about the wonderful work that leaders from school districts all over the State of Georgia are doing to help young people as part of the grant. It was especially encouraging to see what great things are happening in our own school district in Columbus, GA that has impacted hundreds of kids with the collaborative leadership of our GEAR UP program, Columbus State University and the Muscogee County School District.”
