"Go Get It" Program Encourages Students to Further Education

Go get it. That's what kids all over Chatham County will be learning to do during the school year. Go get more education or training after getting a good start in school.

They're opening special computer rooms in each school to help youngsters learn a lot. From picking the right college or learning a skill to paying for the training or tuition.

"You can't ever say that you don't have this or that to go to college, cause you have it," said eight grader Larisha Robertson. "So that is what kind of program it is, it shows you can do it."

Businesses, universities, colleges and state government make the program possible. They'll have it in all Chatham-Savannah schools in the next few months.
