Upon completion of his studies, he accepted a position at Savannah State University where he taught for six years before being transferred to Armstrong Atlantic State University (now known as Georgia Southern University-Armstrong Campus) where he retired as a professor of Education in 2007.
Dr. Agyekum was loved by many and a devoted family man. He was committed to his church, St. James Catholic church, as well as his professional and fraternal organizations such as Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society and Kappa Alpha Psi Inc., respectively.
