(AJC) — Out of four kids, Dontavious Taylor is the first high school graduate and first to attend college from his family. A former student of Project GRAD Atlanta, the English major at Morehouse College credits a lot of his educational success to the organization that is dedicated to increasing the number of high school and college graduates from economically disadvantaged communities. “Nowadays, college degrees are required to be competitive at any level whether it is an associate’s or bachelor’s,” said Executive Director Yolanda Watson Spiva. “Our programs really allow us to develop a more educated citizenry which is competitive and a lot of them return back to the city and benefit the local economy.”
