Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center

History of Fulford Center


Situated among towering pines near the main entrance of East Georgia College, the Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center (The Fulford Center) opened as a unique educational resource for Emanuel County and surrounding communities on May 1, 2010. 

Funding for the facility’s construction was made possible through a generous donation to the East Georgia State College Foundation from Mr. and Mrs. A. D. "Pete" Correll in remembrance of Mrs. Correll’s mother, Sudie A. Fulford.

Mrs. Fulford was a highly respected Emanuel County teacher and community volunteer whose educational legacy will continue through the Fulford Center’s outreach efforts — a purpose captured so eloquently in Mrs. Correll’s  reflection of  her mother, “Not only does this building bear her name... her spirit and love of giving are deep within its walls.”
