Lt. Governor Geoff Duncan announced last week that Sen. Lester Jackson (D – Savannah) has been appointed to serve as a member of the Senate Educating Adult Students Study Committee.
“The opportunities granted to an individual through furthered education are endless,” said Sen. Jackson. “As state leaders, we must do everything in our power to eliminate any barriers that may limit an individual from obtaining a high school diploma or GED. I was proud to lead the effort on the passage of Senate Resolution 1035, and I am ready to get to work on behalf of all Georgians to provide expanded access to education.”
Sponsored by Sen. Jackson, the Senate Educating Adult Students Study Committee was created by the passage of SR 1035. The purpose of the study committee is to examine additional educational opportunities for Georgia adults. There are seven members of this committee, four of which are members of the Georgia Senate. Other Senators appointed to serve on this committee are as follows:
Sen. P.K. Martin,
(R – Lawrenceville)
Sen. Lindsey Tippins
(R – Marietta)
Sen. Tonya Anderson
(D – Lithonia)
