CLEMSON – The Charles H. Houston Center’s Office of Academic Excellence will host the eighth grade girls of the Emerging Young Leaders from Robert Anderson Middle School on April 10th.

The Emerging Young Leaders is a group in partnership with Alpha Kappa Alpha and Robert Anderson Middle School. The girls of the EYL will be able to participate in a career development workshop, visit computer labs, meet Clemson students as well as the Clemson Tiger, and have a lunch-and-learn seminar in the campus dining hall.

“We want every girl in this group to believe that college is a reality for her. The college visit is a culmination of a year of mentoring and teaching leadership, civic engagement and community service. While on campus, they will meet undergraduate students who will talk to them about their college experience. They will also get to experience firsthand some of the most exciting aspects of the Clemson campus,” says Starlett Craig, director of the Office of Academic Excellence.
