Kimberly Trejo Awarded SGTC Crisp County Center Student of Excellence Award
Kimberly Trejo of Cordele, a Medical Assisting student at South Georgia Technical College’s Crisp County Center, was named the campus’ Student of Excellence for the month of April at a recent recognition ceremony. Trejo was nominated for the award by her instructor, Vicki Gilbert.
Program instructors nominate one student from their programs who has exhibited high standards academically, socially, and professionally. The student who receives this honor has proven that he or she realizes what hard work is and has made a decision and sincere commitment to excellence.
Gilbert nominated Trejo for her display of work ethic, her excellence in the classroom and her desire to go help others. In addition to being a leader in the classroom, Trejo serves as the Parliamentarian and reporter for the Student Government Association (SGA), often volunteering and participating in community events with the organization.
After being announced as the award recipient by Julie Partain, SGTC Dean of Enrollment Management, Ethridge was presented with a $50 check, an engraved personal plaque, a congratulatory letter from SGTC President Dr. John Watford and a “Student of Excellence” t-shirt. Her name was also engraved on a perpetual plaque that is displayed in the front lobby of the Crisp County Center. A Student of Excellence Banner is also hung in her program area until the next ceremony at which time the banner will be moved.
