UWG Student Achievement Awards honor 100

BY COLTON CAMPBELL University of West Georgia

The University of West Georgia rolled out the blue carpet last week, recognizing more than 100 students who have served as leaders on campus this year during the 2018 Student Achievement Awards. Held each spring, the St udent Ach ievement Awards recognize students and student organizations for their outstanding achievements during the academic year. This event is sponsored by the Center for Student Involvement, Housing and Residence Life, and University Recreation. Dr. Xavier Whitaker, associate vice president of student life and dean of students, served as emcee of the event, opening the awards ceremony with remarks thanking UWG’s faculty and staff members who’ve supported and led the recognized students this academic year. “The student leaders we’ve recognized with these awards have completed a lot of amazing, hard work all year long, but I would be remiss to mention the invaluable encouragement, guidance and support of the faculty and staff members who’ve helped them along the way,” Whitaker said. Recognized students work in a variety of campus organizations, programs and offices, including admissions, housing and residence life, and university recreation. Also awarded were organizations in the sorority and fraternity life program at UWG, including awards for chapters of the year and the President’s Flame award, given to a chapter that demonstrates strong achievements in academics, leadership and service. Whitaker recognized the numerous offices and programs that support students who participate in activities on campus, saying they contribute to students’ well-being and success on campus.

“We are part of a university community that’s all about fostering and ensuring student success,” Whitaker said. “Our amazing programs help students to meet their educational goals and supports their holistic development. We want to ensure students accomplish more than just surviving their college journey, but really making the most out of their Wolf experience to thrive. These programs are essential to help students navigate pathways to success during college and in life.” Admissions •Tour Guide of the Ye a r - A m b e r K e l l y University Ambassador of the Year - Elizabeth Reese •Call Center Student Leader of the Year - Aresley Quevedo •Operations Student Leader of the Year - Sarah Riley Black Student Alliance •Golden Brick Award Yakira Hamilton; Taylor Mason Career Services •Student Employee of the Year - Ashley Young Center for Academic Success •Outstanding Supplemental Instruction Leader Award for 2018 - Maria Jones •Outstanding Peer Academic Coach - Brianna Howard •O ut s t a nd i n g Pe er Tutor Award - Mary Leith Turner •Center for Academic Success Service to the Department Award - Teri Watson Center for Adult Learners and Veterans •CALV Career Development Award - Amani Reid; Yasmin Williams; Taylor Williams; and Andrew Young •CA LV Engagement Award - Mariah Medlock; Larissa McPherson; Carlie Morrison; and Danielle Wynn • CALV Perseverance Awards - Andrew Cobb and Christine Baumgardner • CALV Undergradu-
