KENNESAW — Kennesaw State University officials say they’re preparing for a visit from the president of a nation in western Africa.

School officials say President of the Republic of Ghana, John Mahama, is scheduled to visit the school Sept. 30 to mark the end of the “Year of Ghana,” which is the university’s yearlong study of the country.

Officials say Mahama is expected to talk about Ghana’s emerging role as a democracy and its economic influence during a public lecture.

School officials say the visit is expected to also include meetings with local and state officials, business leaders, a visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and a celebration with the local Ghanaian community.
