(AUGUSTA, GA) - U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson visited Paine College's campus this past Monday, and met with Dr. George C. Bradley, president of Paine College. While the Georgia Senator was back in the state he set aside time to talk with Dr. Bradley about the college’s new programs and projects occurring on campus and in the Augusta community.
“I am proud to be here today and see all the incredible things going on at Paine College. Their new programs and construction of additional buildings are not only benefitting the students, but the Augusta community as a whole. Paine College is leading the way in preparing men and women for positions of leadership so they can go on to serve the community, the nation and the world,” said Senator Isakson.
Under the leadership of Dr. George C. Bradley, a multitude of new programming, building upgrades and capital improvements have occurred on the campus. One of the most recent projects is the construction of the new HEAL Complex, which will house classrooms, laboratories, meeting and conference rooms. Accessible to the public, the facility will also be home to a new health and wellness facility focused on strengthening the community through fitness and healthy living.
The college is also working with neighboring Fort Gordon to establish a Critical Languages Institute designed to teach minority students and soldiers Farsi and Pashtu/Dari languages. Additionally, the college is working to solidify a nuclear science teaching and research laboratory in order to train high caliber students who can serve as future radiation science workers in the robust local nuclear industry in the Augusta, Georgia area and throughout the nation.
“As we continue to raise the quality of life for our students and the community, I’m especially grateful to our federal government representatives, including Senator Isakson, for their support of our mission and vision of becoming a premier liberal arts institution in the region,” said President Bradley.
