NAACP July Mass Meeting To Address Savannah State University’s Future


On Sunday, July 28, 4 pm, the Savannah Branch NAACP will hold a Mass Meeting at First African Baptist Church located at 23 Montgomery Street.

Don Waters, chairman of the Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia, and Savannah State University Interim President Kimberly Ballard-Washington will address public concerns questioning the future of Savannah State University.

The Board of Regents is the single governing board for 26 universities in the University System of Georgia, including Savannah State University. Earlier this month, Ms. Ballard-Washington was appointed Interim President by the Chancellor of the University System of Georgia, after the retirement of President Cheryl Davenport Dossier. The University has been struggling with declines in enrollment, student retention, budgetary issues, and violence on campus.

This important meeting is open to the public. For more information, call the NAACP office at 912-233-4161 or visit
