The M.D. Whitest Medical Institute in conjunction with Wayne Pharmaceuticals are engaged in an effort to save A. S. Clark School in Cordele, Georgia. This school was opened in 1956. It was the first school in Crisp County, Georgia that provided public education to African Americans from elementary to high school. In may of 2014 it closed after 58 years of service as a public school education site for students of Crisp County. A.S. Clark sits on 18 plus acres of land near slowly dying African American neighborhoods. These neighborhoods suffer from a disproportionately high unemployment rate due in great part to a lack of industry. The school facilities and acreage are a good site for the development of a Bio-Medical Research program that will bring high tech jobs in the bio-science and bio-medical industries to local residents.
The M.D. Whitest Medical Institute has completed the purchase of A.S. Clark from the Crisp County Board of Education for use as our new Bio-Medical Research and Educational facility. We will aggressively begin efforts to convert the school into an economic engine that will bring jobs to the community while preserving this historic site.
The support of the community will be important for the success of the A.S. Clark Bio-medical Research program, and we ask that you join our initiative and support us in this effort. There are many different sponsorship levels that you can choose from ranging from as little as $100 up to $50,000 and above.
This is an opportunity for you to support our important and historic mission to develop and manufacture vaccines and eventually a cure for HIV and AIDS, and to help in developing this vital economic engine for our community.
