“Service-Learning opportunities have allowed me to expand my knowledge base and gain a deeper understanding of how to utilize this knowledge to provide meaningful assistance to community partners. The Service-Learning courses I have taken at the College of Coastal Georgia have been a foundational component of my undergraduate experience and will undoubtedly boost my preparedness for the next steps in my career.”
- Cameron Atkinson
“Cameron excelled as a Coastal Ecology intern with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Coastal Resources Division during summer 2019. He took full advantage of the internship, learning about all aspects of marine fisheries and coastal management, developing practical skills, and writing a technical report to guide wetland restoration. His supervisors at DNR were extremely impressed with his performance and contributions, and they recommended him for the highly competitive Nathan Deal Conserve Georgia's Natural Resources Scholarship, which he won – the sole recipient in the entire state!”
