" I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I'll get to work with a group of dedicated students to make an impact on our campus. The goal of my project is to increase awareness of local government issues and to show students exactly what they can do to influence decision-making in our city. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Yellow Jackets for Local Impact
This project is intended to increase the number of students at Georgia Tech that care about local government. By organizing events with local officials and giving students a look into how Atlanta institutions interact with the community, Perrier hopes students will learn just how impactful they can be.
By the end of next semester, she hopes to organize three events that give students an opportunity to learn from and ask questions of elected officials serving the Atlanta area.
