Remote Instruction Will Continue for ABAC During the Summer Term

TIFTON—Instruction will continue to be delivered remotely at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College and the other 25 institutions in the University System of Georgia during the remainder of the spring semester and the summer term, with only limited exceptions. USG institutions, including ABAC, are tentatively planning to return to normal on-campus operations for the fall semester should guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Georgia Department of Public Health allow it.  At this time, fall semester classes are scheduled to begin on Aug. 12 at ABAC. Meanwhile, all institutions have been asked to continue their current telework and flexible work strategies for faculty and staff.  USG institutions overall have remained open, with only minimal staff physically on-site to ensure continuity of certain services. ABAC and all USG institutions continue to prioritize the safety of students, faculty, and staff as each college and university does its part to help stem the spread of the coronavirus in Georgia and fulfill the USG mission to graduate students in these challenging times. Additional information on spring semester instruction (which is ongoing) and options for students during the 2020 summer term is available at the ABAC website at www.abac.edu. ###

Adel Student Receives Award of Distinction in ABAC School of Arts and Sciences

TIFTON—Jaylee Bass from Adel has been selected as the top student in the School of Arts and Sciences at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. Dr. Matthew Anderson, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, said Bass will receive the Award of Distinction. Bass has compiled a 3.97 grade point average on a 4.0 scale in the bachelor’s degree in Writing and Communication. An ABAC Foundation Scholar, she received the AT&T Georgia Scholarship from the ABAC Foundation. “This scholarship has allowed me to get a well-rounded education while at ABAC," Bass said. "As a part of that education, I went to France for a month visiting World War II sites with my classmates on a study abroad trip. That experience is one that I will cherish for the rest of my life." Bass is a member of the prestigious ABAC Ambassadors’ leadership team and the ABAC Honors Program. She presented research at her first Honors Conference in February. “I was thoroughly impressed with her poise and presentation skills,” Dr. Cindy Hall, a Professor of English and Director of the ABAC Honors Program, said. “She has helped the Honors Program at many Stallion Days and recruited many students for us.” Anderson said Bass would have been honored at the annual ABAC Honors Day but the ceremony was cancelled due to the pandemic. ###

Willacoochee Student Receives Top Academic Award at ABAC

TIFTON— Abby Unger, a senior biology major from Willacoochee, has been selected as the top academic student at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. As ABAC’s J.G. Woodroof Scholar, Unger represented the college in Atlanta in February when the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia hosted the Academic Recognition Day students from each of the 26 colleges and universities in the USG at its meeting.  Chancellor Steve Wrigley then honored the students at a luncheon, attended by ABAC President David Bridges and Unger’s family.  The Woodroof Scholar Award is named for Dr. J.G. Woodroof, the first president of ABAC in 1933.  The award is normally presented at the ABAC Honors ceremony but the ceremony was cancelled this year because of the pandemic. After compiling a 3.97 grade point average on a 4.0 scale during her four years at ABAC, Unger graduated this semester.  She has been accepted to the Mercer University School of Medicine this fall where she plans to attend classes on the Savannah campus. Unger believes her ABAC education established a strong foundation for the rigorous classes she will face in medical school. “I believe ABAC provided me with a quality education,” Unger said.  “It was hard.  I studied every day.  At ABAC, the professors really care about your grades.  They want you to do well.” At ABAC, Unger was a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and the Tri-Beta Biological Honors Society.  She was also a member of the ABAC Honors Program and the Advancing Toward Occupations in Medicine club. The 2016 graduate of Coffee High School also involved herself in community service activities including Habitat for Humanity, Adopt-A-Mile, and the Georgia Farm Workers Health Project. ###
