MGA Student’s Unexpected Move Across Country Won’t Derail Her Degree

In late February, Sara Lynn Slagle got an offer she did not want to refuse. A modeling agency offered the Middle Georgia State University student, a professional model since she was a junior at Macon’s First Presbyterian Day School, a chance to work in Los Angeles for two or three months – maybe longer. She could build her portfolio (her “book,” as they refer to it in the modeling industry) and potentially make some serious money.
