School Outreach Project 2016

  • On May 6, 2016, the American Turkish Friendship Council (ATFC) continued with its outreach school project to educate American students about the history and culture of Turkey. More than 300 7th and 8th graders at Sutton Middle School attended the program. On behalf of ATFC, we would like to thank Mr. Robert Weatherly, Social Studies teacher, Sutton Middle School, for supporting our project; Orhan Bahadir Dogan and Evrim Guler, graduate students at Georgia State University (GSU) and Gamze Gok, undergraduate student at Oglethorpe University, for giving a wonderful presentation and Onur Gul, visiting scholar at Georgia State University (GSU) for introducing the Turkish classical music and Oud to the students.
