In his own words, “This institution gave me the opportunity not only to graduate from high school as part of the adult education program, but also the opportunity to continue my college education. The study of the human mind is something that caught my attention for a few years, but the pandemic that occurred last year deepened my interest in this field. The stress of the situation the world was going through and the need for people to go into therapy was key to my decision to continue in this field. Being able to help people cope with situations like stress, anxiety, depression, is something that I would like to contribute to this society, but most of all I would like to help people who are not fluent. English, people who speak Spanish to be more specific. Personally, I can understand how frustrating it is not to be able to communicate or express yourself in your mother tongue, when you are not fluent in the local language, which is also the reason why many people do not ask for help. ‘aid.
Dr Freida Hill-Harrell, former president of Southwest Georgia Technical College, and her husband Bill Harrell founded the Hill-Harrell Fellowship. While her career has taken her to various positions within the Technical College System of Georgia, South Georgia has always held a special place in Dr. Hill-Harrell’s heart. The couple decided to support students at Southern Regional Technical College who are pursuing their educational dreams. It is their mission to ease the burden on needy technical college students.
