Fred Greene, President of the newly formed SAAB chapter composed of students from GMC received a standing ovation as he spoke at the SAAB regional summit. On October 26th, 8 Gary Middle College students traveled to the Indiana University Northwest Campus in Gary, IN to attend the Midwest Chapter Cluster Summit of SAAB–Student African American Brotherhood.

Students from GMC shared their experiences with other SAAB Chapters in the midwest region. SAAB is an organization that provides a support network for African American male students to foster their growth and development as students and future professionals.

Founder and President Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe spoke at the event and was so impressed with the new chapter formed by GMC students that he personally invited them to the March 2014 National SAAB Conference in Detroit, MI. Way to go GMC SAAB members! We are proud of you and expect the best out of each one of you!
