University of Georgia Chancellor says graduation rates on the rise


COLUMBUS, Ga- University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby visited Columbus today with some good news about higher education in the Peach State.

Huckaby told those attending the Chamber’s Second Annual State of Education luncheon Tuesday that Georgia has increased its college graduation rate. He says improved graduation rates will boost Georgia’s workforce.

In addition, Huckaby gives Columbus State University an “A+” for having ties to downtown Columbus.

“Any of our institutions who have a downtown presence or close to downtown are a significant factor in the quality of life and economic vibrancy of that community. There’s no better example than Columbus, Georgia,” says Chancellor Huckaby.

Huckaby also says Georgia has saved money by consolidating technical schools and colleges. The next two schools scheduled to merge are Albany State University and Darton College. That merger should be completed by January.
