ATLANTA, Georgia – The Hon. Randy Rolle, Bahamas Consul General to Atlanta, along with other members of the Consular Corps in Atlanta met with staff at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) to discuss partnership opportunities with educational institutions in The Bahamas on Thursday, May 7, 2015.

Presently there are three Bahamian students attending SCAD. Consul General Rolle said one of his goals is to increase the number of Bahamians attending the institution over the next several years. SCAD was founded in 1978 by Richard G. Rowan, Paula S. Wallace, May L. Poetter and Paul E. Poetter to provide college degree programs not previously available in southeast Georgia and to create a specialized professional art college to attract students from throughout the United States and abroad.

The curriculum was established with dual goals of excellent arts education and effective career preparation for students.  In the photos below Consul General Rolle is pictured in SCAD’S theatre and with Ms. Amanda Hauther, Community Engagement Associate with SCAD.
