- In the spring of 1929, the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, the oldest business organization in the State of Georgia, engaged the Savannah Board of Public Education in discussions surrounding the need for a trained workforce to support the growing industrial economy of coastal Georgia. By fall, the Savannah Board of Public Education in cooperation with the business community opened the Opportunity School on Wright Square at Bull Street. The Opportunity School was established to train young men with the skills necessary to work in the new industrial age. In 1967, The Savannah Area Vocational-Technical School was officially dedicated to serve a five county region of Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, Liberty and Long counties.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
