STEM laboratory projected by next summer



CAPS-ATL will instill integrity and ethics learned from the chairman’s 33 years with the Department of Justice.

DEA and STEM grant support monies are available to build and conduct the local program. All funds go toward student training.

Davis said the program could begin at a Georgia College facility if the Wilkes Building isn’t ready for use. CSHLRA Executive Director Mike Couch submitted a lease package for Wilkes and two other campus buildings to the State Properties Commission and expects a quick June turnaround. 

For a Texas man, Davis grew a Milledgeville attachment, while trying to recruit a former student in the city. He chose Georgia for the CAPS-ATL location soon after.

“My focus was trying to stay in Texas. Also, I believe that this is something I’m giving back to the community and if that community is here in Milledgeville, I’m still doing what I want to do,” he said Wednesday.

The first shot assisting Central State and the community’s educational image is a July 17-18 STEM Summit. The conference gatherings will occur at Georgia College and CSH.

Davis covets the chance to show the community the seriousness and sincerity of the Central State Hospital housed analytical laboratory plan.

Professors and legislators from all over the country will attend the Milledgeville showcase. Congressional attendees, Georgia Congressman Paul Broun and Texas Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson, both sit on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. As Davis jokes, the nation’s scientists are getting old. CAPS-ATL might provide suitable replacements,

“We haven’t focused on how we are going to replace those bodies. We need to focus on how we get more kids into STEM. The whole concept of CAPS-ATL is to provide a place for these kids to learn and take their skills into the 21st century workforce.”
