Who’s Who at YHC 4

Dedication Cathy Cox President of YHC


hen the YHC Board of Trustees elected Cathy Cox as President in 2007, our college was the so-called “best kept secret” in Georgia. Seven years later, YHC is a secret no more. Under President Cox’s leadership, Young Harris College has been completely transformed into a twenty-first century college as it has successfully transitioned from a two-year college to a fouryear college. As you look across campus, you will see new residence halls, new apartment-style housing, a new recreation and fitness facility, and a new campus center - all constructed to the highest environmental standards. Newly acquired college properties have been renovated and repurposed, enabling the campus and the academic programs to continue to grow. Admission into the NCAA has led to the addition of new athletic programs and many improvements to athletic facilities.

unprecedented growth in student enrollment. More than 1,100 students enrolled fall semester 2013; the seventh consecutive year of record enrollment. Some worried that with such a significant increase in the number of students on campus, the personal-touch aspect of our living and learning environment would be compromised. This President makes no compromises when it comes to student success. President Cox’s accessibility to students is well known across campus. Her door is always open, and it is obvious that she has a genuine interest in their lives, calling them by name as she walks the campus. She can be found at weekly Vesper’s services, theatre and musical productions, student recitals, art exhibits, and cheering on student-athletes at college athletic events. Not only does she support students by attending their events, but also she keeps herself available so that she can counsel students on their future plans and write them letters of recommendation for graduate schools or employers. She regularly invites students to her home for dinner and over good food “picks their brains” to find out what they like about YHC and to listen to their suggestions on how to make YHC a better place. Cathy Cox is very much a student-centered president. President Cox’s vision is for Young Harris College to be a first class four-year liberal arts college and to preserve the unique spirit that has defined this place since its founding in 1886. She’s doing that, and all those associated with YHC are better because she became our President seven years ago. - Teresa Hobbs, Administrative Assistant to the President

The number of highly credentialed faculty has doubled during this time of transition, and seventeen baccalaureate degrees and seventeen minors are now available with more degrees to come. Administration and staff positions have also been created to accommodate the student growth. Young Harris College is now one of the largest employers in the region. Under President Cox’s leadership, YHC has experienced


Pacesetters Tonya Nix

Assistant to VP of Student Development


onya is an administrative assistant in the Office of Student Development. In her position, Tonya is often the first line of contact for students and parents. Tonya excels in this role as she is friendly, kind, compassionate, and helpful. She always goes the extra mile in assisting parents and students to ensure that they are receiving the help needed. Further, Tonya is the “glue” that holds our office together. She is the first to offer to help and she goes out of her way to support colleagues and students, attending after hours events or providing assistance when needed. Beyond her willingness to help, Tonya also serves as a listening ear, mother figure, and mentor to scores of students. Her genuine kindness and concern resonate with all who know her. Brian Montgomery, a Junior, describes Tonya as “compassionate, intelligent, unselfish, and willing to lend a hand to anyone going through a life dilemma.” Above and beyond serving as a listening ear to students during the day, Tonya is an extremely dedicated advisor to Phi Alpha Phi, freely giving of her time and energy to attend meetings and assist them with programs. Tonya’s mantra is “we are here for the students” and she does everything possible to make sure that her work, as well as our work in the Division of Student Development reflects that mantra. She never hesitates to go above and beyond to make sure the needs of the Young Harris College community are met. She is an incredible resource, friend, and support to all those who know her.


acesetter awards are given to students, faculty, and staff who are believed to be exceptionally successful in their day-to-day jobs at Young Harris College, whether they be students, teachers, or staff. To show appreciation, the awards are presented as a “Thank You” to these individuals for making everyone’s experience at Young Harris the best possible.

- Angi Smith, VP of Student Development

Clint Hobbs

Steve Morgan

VP for Enrollment Management & External Relations

Instructor of Astronomy



acesetter is an appropriately named award for this recipient, who is known to every student who enrolls at Young Harris College, for he has been the driving force behind the College’s seven consecutive record-setting years of enrollment growth with his methodical, intensive, and focused approach to recruiting students to YHC. A graduate of Young Harris himself, it has been easy for him to “sell” the value of a Young Harris College education to prospective students with a level of sincerity, knowledge, personal attention and compassion that draws people to the College and makes him one of the most effective, and long-tenured, vice presidents of enrollment management anywhere in the southeast. He sets high standards for himself and his staff, he’s assiduous about training and staying abreast of trends in his profession, and he works non-stop – literally seven days a week – during the college recruiting season to assure that all parts of multi-faceted admissions and financial assistance processes are working for the benefit of YHC students and prospective students and their families. He’s also taken on an External Relations role for the College that plays on his strong ties to our local community. Without question, Clint Hobbs is one of YHC’s most dedicated staff members and he truly sets the pace for the entire College community.

r. Steve Morgan is a stellar example of a pacesetter, one who goes above and beyond the ordinary expectations of one’s job. As planetarium director, not only does he operate with ease some of the most sophisticated, technical equipment on campus, he does so with great dedication and passion for his discipline as he presents more than 200 programs a year to school children and the community at large. That’s not all. Mr. Morgan is always available to demonstrate mini-planetarium shows to students on visitation days, whether they be class days, weekends or holidays. Surely, some students have been recruited to Young Harris having felt the siren call of the beyond. Need something to do on a Friday night? Check the schedule for you may be in for a cosmic experience! You may even get the chance to visit the nearby observatory and view a celestial event firsthand. Did you know that you can get a minor in Astronomy? These courses are ever popular with Young Harris students who frequently comment on Mr. Morgan’s extensive knowledge, his contagious enthusiasm and his humor. The dedicated few find themselves fortunate to mentored by Mr. Morgan in a planetarium internship and under his expert guidance, learn how to operate the GOTO Chronos fulldome planetarium projector, the first of its kind in the world. In addition, Mr. Morgan actively engages in regional, national, and international conferences to keep abreast of new developments, making him an ideal teacher and community liaison. Young Harris College is lucky to have this pacesetter star!

Dr. Steve Harvey Professor of English

Will Skelton Student



ew faculty in YHC’s 127 year history have set the pace toward excellence at higher levels than Dr. Steve Harvey. Not only is Dr. Harvey a gifted writer with several books and multiple published essays, he is also an accomplished musician, playing the banjo and guitar and singing with the folk group Butternut Creek and Friends. Perhaps, however, Steve Harvey’s shiniest gold medal should be awarded for his teaching. For nearly forty years, he has illuminated literature for thousands of YHC students and helped them to write clear, vigorous, insightful papers. His impact on a generation of students is immeasurable. Simply, mention Steve Harvey’s name to alumni, and they light up with reminiscences of his classes—of his gentle humor and quiet passion for words beautifully wrought. Those of us who have had the privilege of working with Steve Harvey are struck by his devotion to his students and the college and by his encouragement and generosity as a friend and colleague. Always a proponent of excellence and personal honor in the classroom, Steve Harvey leads the pack and sets a pace we can only hope to follow.

n the world of Theatre, the best actors and directors are observers of life who demonstrate a curiosity and craving to learn as much as they can about everything around them; in essence, they are Renaissance men and women. Will Skelton is one of those extraordinarily special people. He is a champion and friend to the underdog, a mentor to those in need, proud of everything he himself is, and a gentleman in the style of the “old school.” Performing and studying in local community venues long before coming to YHC, Will has been working on his theatre career for a long time, honing his skills, and making valuable contacts. He is responsible for YHC being introduced to adjunct dance instructor Shelley Gordon. When I was reticent to cast some students with whom I had never worked, Will stepped forward without hesitation to make recommendations regarding actors he knew who could do the job. I took his advice…thankfully! He is an astute actor, an impressive singer, a discerning director, and a student of the creative process who generously shares his talents with others. Will Skelton IS the paragon of what a YHC Pacesetter ought to be - always there for those seeking advice, needing a friendly smile, or wanting a word of encouragement. I am proud to have known and worked with Will; and because he leaves behind a humanistic legacy of focusing on “the way it’s supposed to be,” the YHC family is sure to feel the void when he leaves us in May.

Allison Burnham Student

Katie Earle Student



llison Burnham will graduate this spring and she will certainly be missed greatly. Allison has been a fantastic representation of the women’s soccer program for the past 4 years. She has competed as a member of the women’s soccer team for all 4 years while maintaining a 3.89 cumulative GPA. She was voted by her team as a captain her senior year, a direct sign of respect and admiration of her peers and the coaching staff. She was also an active member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Allison is intelligent, kind, thoughtful, quirky, confident, and easy to talk to. I find her easy going personality refreshing. She is able to accomplish difficult goals and tasks and will never collapse under the pressure. Allison has been gifted in a variety of different areas. Not only is she a fantastic athlete, she is also a gifted artist. I know she has all the tools to be an absolute success in life. I am thrilled to have had the op-portunity to work with her as she has grown from a young girl to a con-fident woman ready to take on all the challenges the real world holds!

atie Earle is famous. She’s not just well known among faculty and staff for her willingness to participate, question, learn, and grow; it seems that students from firstyear to get-me-outta-here last year know and seek out Katie as well. She exudes that rarest of traits: living life in the moment. To be present while the one thousand components of college life swirl around you is rare, but to keep advancing at a brisk pace is a remarkable feat. No doubt her fame also rests upon another trait: she is sincerely and honestly curious and interested about the outside world, academics, institutional goings on, and other people. Regardless of the circumstance, when Katie is present, she is truly and fully engaged. You can see the wheels turning. Her bright eyes are focused, and then her head goes toward one shoulder. Next is the appearance of a tiny frown. This is the signal that a question, comment, or an observation is about to be issued. And those utterances are . . . something! Perhaps what matters most in Katie’s deserved status as YHC Pacesetter is that she is totally honest about anxieties and stresses of daily college life, but her determination and “can do” attitude reflects courage, which is not the lack of fear, but the decision to keep moving forward despite the fear. That’s why Katie is famous, and that’s why she is so rightfully a 2014 Pacesetter.

“I was within and without. Simultaneously enchanted and repelled by the inexhaustible variety of life.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald or the 2013-2014 Enotah yearbook, the staff wanted to create a book with a specific theme and an artistic flair. After we brainstormed ideas, “art deco” stood out the most. As a popular artistic style in the 1920s and ‘30s, art deco is known for its precise, sharp, and bold geometric shapes and vibrant colors. In its time period, it was predominant in the design work of household objects and architecture. Emphasizing the timeless art deco era, we placed black and white photographs on pages with art deco design work and fonts. Tying the 1920s in with the current contemporary time period, we incorporated filtered pictures with the monochromatic and color photographs. Overall, we wanted to create a book that represents the

past, present, and future of YHC. While the design work pertains to the past and the photographs relate to the present, the inserted quotes point towards the future. For a graduating senior the future is the most pressing issue in his or her mind. “Where do I go from here?” Our lives filled with the memories of the past and the uncertainty of what is to come. Many people can relate to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s closing statement in The Great Gatsby: “So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” Fitzgerald concludes that instead of rushing towards death in the future, humanity is trapped in the dissatisfaction of the past. Unlike Gatsby, we don’t have to let the past determine the rest of our lives. We can take our individual and unique experiences at Young Harris College and apply them to our futures. From this point we move forward, not to repeat the past, but to succeed and find our places in the world.

Clubs & Organizations


Alpha Chi Charter members of the Georgia Xi chapter of the national honor society of Alpha Chi were inducted at YHC in 2011.

Membership in Alpha Chi is limited to no more than 10 percent of the junior and senior classes. The objectives of Alpha Chi are to promote and recognize superior scholarship and those elements of character which make scholarship effective for service. Founded in 1922, the society has more than 300 chapters. Membership is the highest academic honor on campus.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” - Michael Jordan “The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.” - Babe Ruth “We’re all just playing our own game. I don’t see it as a rivalry. We’re just trying to play our best.” - Michelle Wie “I’m a jock and I’m an athlete, and that’s what I love to do.” - Marion Jones
