Armstrong in the Czech Republic

(August 15 2016) College of Education professors and students had the opportunity to meet with Andrew Sharpiro, the American Ambassador to the Czech Republic. The Armstrong faculty and students were invited guests to a speech given by Mr. Sharpiro to the faculty of the University of South Bohemia. During their three-week visit as guests of the University of South Bohemia (USB) in Ceske Budejoviche, Armstrong students visited several schools and interacted with students at all levels.  The Armstrong students gave presentations and led informal talks with middle and high school students  about Armstrong State University, the City of Savannah, and the State of Georgia.  Armstrong will host ten Czech students and two faculty from USB who will be on our campus in September to learn more about our local public schools and our university.
