ABAC Enrollment Management Director Receives Top Professional Development Award

November 9, 2017

Donna Webb, Director of Enrollment Management at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, received the Joe F. Head Professional Development Award at the recent Georgia Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (GACRAO) Conference in Athens.

Created in 2010, the award is named for Head, the former associate vice president for enrollment services and dean of university admissions at Kennesaw State University.   The award is presented in recognition of individuals who demonstrate exceptional effort in fostering professional development and make outstanding accomplishments in the professional development field.

“While I never had the honor or pleasure of working directly with Donna Webb, I always admired her ‘cheerleading spirit’ for others who were rising in the field,” Head said.  “Years ago, I recall a shy young lady who stayed the course, blossomed in the trenches and rose in the industry to a senior position, but also took the time, from a distance, to encourage newbies entering the field.

“In casual conversation, I often heard others praise Donna for mentoring rookies and that she personally took several under her watchful eye, including my own daughter, Meredith.  She is today’s poster child for cultivating young professionals, and I am honored that she is receiving GACRAO’s Professional Development Award.”

Webb served on the GACRAO Executive Committee from 2009 to 2016.  During that time, she made numerous presentations and was selected to present at state and national meetings.  She serves as secretary for the national organization, the Southern Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (SACRAO).

Webb is also a member of the Georgia College Personnel Association, the Georgia Education Articulation Committee, and the Southern Association of Collegiate Admissions Counseling.  She also served as chair of the Regents Administrative Committee on Records and Admissions in 2013-2014.

Webb joined the ABAC administration in 2008 as Director of Enrollment Services.  Her husband, Garth, retired in 2002 after 27 years as the ABAC Director of Admissions.
