    After graduating high school, Mary Ogidigben wasn’t quite sure where her educational journey would lead her next. She knew that she liked mathematics and physics, but neither felt like they led her down the right career path. It wasn’t until her father returned home with a library book full of college majors that she found her calling. “We went through every single major one-by-one until we found industrial engineering,” said Ogidigben, who graduates from Kennesaw State University this month with a degree in industrial and systems engineering. “It’s a field that combines all of my interests, and I decided right then it was the right choice for me.”  –  December 14, 2020

To that end, they recently partnered with Kennesaw State University to develop a statewide database of musicians and related professionals that will help productions locate Georgia talent. Earlier this year the Georgia Department of Economic Development asked Kennesaw State’s Joel A. Katz Music and Entertainment Business (MEBUS) program to create a directory of the roughly 20,000 Georgians working in various capacities within the music industry. The recently launched directory includes artists, venues, studios, managers, marketing firms, attorneys and schools.  –  December 10, 2020
