Dawn Ammons Named SGTC Student of Excellence
Dawn Ammons of Ellaville was recently recognized as the March Student of Excellence on the South Georgia Technical College Americus campus. Ammons studies Marketing Management and was nominated by her instructor, Mary Cross.
“I nominated Dawn Ammons because of her impeccable work ethics,” Cross said. “She is an awesome student, she is a great person, and I’m very proud of her.”
Ammons, who is also a graduate of SGTC’s Cosmetology program, was thrilled to be chosen as the Student of Excellence. “I was honored to be nominated by Mrs. Cross,” she stated. “That means my hard work in the class is paying off.”
The Student of Excellence is selected based on a number of criteria, including grades, work ethics, participation in clubs and organizations, and amount of program completion. Each month, students from certain divisions selected for that month are nominated for the Student of Excellence award by their instructors. SGTC’s business programs were the focus for March.
In addition to Ammons, the other nominees were: Sara Rogers of Cordele, Accounting, nominated by Brenda Boone; Justice Hayes of Cartersville, Sports and Fitness Management, nominated by Chris Ballauer; and Nickolas Phelps of Hephzibah, Computer Information Systems, nominated by Andrea Ingram.
As the winner, Ammons was awarded with a plaque of recognition, a personal letter of recommendation from SGTC President Dr. John Watford and a $50 check for her accomplishments. Additionally, her name will be displayed on SGTC’s digital marquee as well as inscribed on a plaque in Hicks Hall among previous Student of Excellence winners. Each nominee was awarded with a nomination certificate and an exclusive student of excellence t-shirt.
