Eleven Pacesetter awards were presented by the campus newspaper’s editorial board at the recent Student Leadership Banquet at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

ABAC’s award-winning student newspaper, “The Stallion,” extends Pacesetter recognition annually to those who have worked for ABAC through their actions and exemplary service.  Pacesetters are chosen from the student body, the administration, the faculty, and the staff. Through their hard work, talent, and devotion, recipients embody the spirit of the college.

This year’s faculty and staff Pacesetter recipients included Brad Barbee, Grounds Manager II with Sodexo; Trent Hester, residence life coordinator in the Office of Student Life and Housing; Dr. Mark Richardson, assistant professor of English and communication in the School of Liberal Arts; Lisa Seibert, academic support counselor in the Office of Academic Support; and Dr. Jess Usher, assistant professor of history in the School of Liberal Arts.

The students awarded Pacesetters included David Daughtry, a diversified agriculture major from Harlem; Tonja Howard, a biology major from Sumner; Sheila Norvell, a rural studies – social and community development major from Doerun, Jana Register, a rural studies – politics and modern cultures major from Brunswick: and Megan Wehmeier, a rural studies – social and community development major from Douglas.

A Superior Pacesetter award was awarded to incoming Student Government Association President Ginger Orton.  She is an agricultural communications major from Ellaville.  The Superior Pacesetter is given to a person who students believe has done the most for the college during the year while exemplifying leadership and service to the campus.
