The Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center

Situated among towering pines near the main entrance of East Georgia State College, the Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center (The Fulford Center) opened as a unique educational resource for Emanuel County and surrounding communities on May 1, 2010.

Funding for the facility’s construction was made possible through a generous donation to the East Georgia State College Foundation from Mr. and Mrs. A. D. "Pete" Correll in remembrance of Mrs. Correll’s mother, Sudie A. Fulford.

Mrs. Fulford was a highly respected Emanuel County teacher and community volunteer whose educational legacy will continue through the Fulford Center’s outreach efforts — a purpose captured so eloquently in Mrs. Correll’s reflection of her mother, “Not only does this building bear her name... her spirit and love of giving are deep within its walls.”

Within the span of its relatively brief existence, the Fulford Center has provided many educational programs and services. It is central to the vision that the Fulford Center serves as an educational and cultural hub to the surrounding area, filled with planetarium shows, workshops, exhibitions, classes and performances for people of all ages. To date, many lives have been enriched by the opportunities at the Center.
