    The Call Me MISTER (Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) program inducted three new Southern Wesleyan University Students on June 20th, 2021.

    The inducted students included Kennedy Lowrance, Lee Watts, and Eric-Adam McCollum.

    The Call Me MISTER blazer is presented to MISTERs upon completing their academic program leading to a teaching credential. According to the certificate given to each MISTER, the recipient must represent the ideals and objectives of the program which include “strong manhood development, personal empowerment, leadership, responsibility, service, and focus on success principles”. The blazer is also to be worn on the first and last day of each inductee’s induction year as a teacher.

    The mission of the Call Me MISTER Initiative is to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader and more diverse background particularly among the State’s lowest-performing elementary schools. Student participants are largely selected from under-served, socio- economically disadvantaged, and educationally at-risk communities (Call Me MISTER).

    Students enrolled in Call Me MISTER will receive a scholarship, tuition assistance, an academic support system, and a cohort system for social and cultural support. For details about the Call Me MISTER program, see SWU’s website or contact
