How is it that an NFL linebacker can score a touchdown during the offseason?  Well, Rennie Curran, a linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did just that when he stopped by Atlanta Technical College last week to speak to members of the Atlanta Technical College Institute for Males (AIM).

Curran who was considered an undersized player by many sports analysts when he began his college career at the University of Georgia, spoke to the young men about defying the odds and overcoming obstacles.  Explaining that hard-work, dedication and self-confidence are the cornerstones of success, he shared how he used these traits to become one of the top weakside linebackers in his class and advance to the NFL. Curran encouraged students to use their time in college to thoroughly prepare for the careers they have chosen and develop life-long relationships that can be leveraged to uplift their families, communities and nation.

The Atlanta Technical College, Institute for Males campus initiative serves to increase the enrollment and retention of males at Atlanta Technical College. This initiative offers post-secondary preparation, academic and personal support for current and new students.
