Little Plays Key Role in $75,000 Grant for GCSU Program

Emmanuel Little

IHE doctoral student Emmanuel Little receives grant for Call Me MISTER program from the Betty and David Fitzgerald Foundation.

Emmanuel Little, director of Georgia College and State University’s Call Me MISTER program, was instrumental in the receipt of a $75,000 grant award from the Betty and David Fitzgerald Foundation for the program. Call Me MISTER (Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role models), founded at Clemson University in 2000, strives to increase the pool of available teachers from diverse backgrounds, particularly for low-performing elementary schools.

Georgia College is the only campus in Georgia to offer the program. MISTERS are expected to earn degrees in early childhood education, special education or middle grades education and then teach in a Georgia public school for at least one year for each year they received financial support from the program. “I fully expect Georgia College’s Call Me MISTER program to produce talented teachers who will become leaders for transformational change throughout school systems in the state of Georgia,” says Little.

More information about Call Me MISTER can be found at and on the program’s Facebook fan page.
