STING, INC. thanks community for supporting college spring break


STING, Inc. wants to thank everyone who supported their organization and helped to make the recent DC Historical College Tour Road trip possible for program students. 

STING’S nonprofit youth organization traveled to the nation’s capital and enjoyed other cities along the way as they spent Spring Break touring colleges and universities. During the college tour, students visited several campuses including Howard University, The George Washington University, Norfolk State University, Old Dominion University, North Carolina A&T University, Bennett College for Women, Johnson C Smith University, and Clemson University. The group was composed of middle and high school students from South Cobb County. They were joined by students from Gwinnett County, Newton County, South Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

STING students also toured the National Museum of African American History, The Martin Luther King Memorial, and The Lincoln Memorial and met with Congresswoman Lucy McBath, Congressman David Scott, and U. S. Senator Raphael Warnock.

While visiting Bennett College, students were able to visit with STING Alumni member and Board Advisor Brianne Perkins, a 2018 graduate of Pebblebrook High School. Perkins is the Senior Class President at Bennett and happily conducted the campus tour of her college for STING students. Other trip special highlights include participating student Tayla Williams receiving an acceptance letter from Norfolk State University.

STING was greeted by Alum Makala Muhammed in Durham NC.  Makala is a 2021 graduate of Georgia Tech, with a Masters in Engineering. He is employed by Duke Health Systems.  

Dr. Tarin Hampton, former professor at Morehouse College and current professor at Norfolk State University, greeted STING students at Norfolk State University.
