Emergency Management majors want to bring interest to the major

March 22, 2016

Since the emergency management majors attended the 18th annual higher education symposium this past summer in Maryland, they have been working to bring more awareness about the program to Voorhees College.

Since February 2016, Voorhees students have been training with the Savannah River Emergency Operation Center (EOC) on site and via classroom tele-communication. This bridges the research and practical divide on important emergency management topics.

Emergency Management Associate Professor Rodney Boyd recently was invited to be a judge for the 45th Annual South Carolina Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, which was held at the University of South Carolina.

Boyd said he hopes to bring symposiums and programs such as this to Voorhees so people can come to the campus and learn about the institution and what it can offer future students.

“Hopefully our efforts have sparked that special interest in a student who will elect to attend Voorhees College and become a scientist or research in the future.”
