    Architecture Student Crafts Thesis to Preserve Black History

    February 15, 2021

    A Savannah native, Kennesaw State University student Olivia Harrell grew up marveling at the architectural beauty of her city’s most historic buildings, including the Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist and SCAD’s Ruskin Hall. When she ventured away from downtown to the area bordering Savannah’s urban core, however, she often left disappointed in the lack of attention paid toward saving the history of its predominantly African American communities. Now a fifth-year architecture student in Kennesaw State’s College of Architecture and Construction Management, Harrell is using her thesis to explore how Black history in Savannah can be preserved for years to come.

In that time, their Sandy Springs-based construction company, Albion, has grown into one of the staunchest supporters of Kennesaw State’s Department of Construction Management. Now, motivated by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and other societal issues impacting KSU students, the company has created a scholarship endowment which, along with its support for capital projects on the Marietta campus, raises Albion’s recent giving to $125,000.
