“I think the initiative that (Davis) is doing and the vision that he has is invaluable. It has so much potential to do not only things for the city of Milledgeville, but the whole United States in training those who do not have the instrumentation to learn the trade of science,” the Ole Miss professor said.
CAPS-ATL has support from the DEA, Georgia Bureau of Investigation and NASA, according to Davis.
With collective higher education backing, the organization can write grants for federal STEM funds. Nelson said Auburn University verbally hopped on board even saying its professors would come and recruit at Georgia College.
CSHLRA Vice Chair Dudley Rowe described Milledgeville’s new STEM direction as a joint benefit to Central State repurposing and national education levels.
“I think (Davis) is one of the many bright spots we have on the horizon. He is part of a solution on so many issues. I think he has the capability with our help to bridge all of that. Darrell is a blessing to our community,” Rowe said.
