Dominic Weems: ‘GHC helped me create a gameplan of what I wanted to do’

Dominic Weems is now an assistant basketball coach at South Arkansas Community College (SouthArk). He earned his associate degree at Georgia Highlands College (GHC), where he credits the school for helping him find the path toward a career he’s always wanted.

“GHC helped me create a gameplan of what I wanted to do in the future,” Weems said. “GHC has definitely helped shape me to be the person I am today.” 

As a GHC student, Weems became involved in GHAME and Brother 2 Brother (B2B), which helped provide him with a support network of other students and faculty. 

“I am forever grateful for them, for they have helped me with becoming a better student and a better person as well while at GHC,” he said.

After graduating from GHC, Weems went on to receive a bachelor’s degree from Berry College and a Master’s in Sports Management from Reinhardt University. He is very excited to be in his role at SouthArk since coaching has always been a longtime goal and passion for him.

As assistant coach, Weems said he hopes to help players strive on and off the court. 

 “I want to help them be leaders in the community,” he said. “I also hope to work with the players on striving to be the best version of themselves and get them to play at a four-year college.”
