Why Greenville Technical College?


From sitting in class to leading one

Of all the teachers who’ve impacted his path, Nehemiah points to a middle school English teacher who changed the way an eighth grader looked at education. At Greenville Technical College, the Southside High School graduate is involved in the Call Me Mister program so that he can become the one other students remember as being the best. When he finishes his general education classes through the University Transfer program, he’ll move on to Coastal Carolina for a bachelor’s degree in education and from there, to his dream job at the front of a high school classroom.


The Call Me MISTER initiative seeks to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader, more diverse background. Student participants are largely selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities.
