University honors accomplishments with student awards

UNG honored its student award winners this spring, with most students receiving awards by mail.

Each spring, the University of North Georgia (UNG) honors students who have excelled in the classroom or Corps of Cadets. This year, UNG is still recognizing these students' outstanding performance even as the COVID-19 pandemic shifted the final two months of the semester online. More than 100 awards recognize student achievements in 2019-20.

Student award ceremonies had been scheduled for UNG's Dahlonega, Gainesville and Oconee campuses; a pair of Corps of Cadets military awards ceremonies had been planned as well. Most of the campus awards were mailed to students.

"Although our celebration of student achievement cannot take place in the usual fashion, we are no less proud of them," said Dr. Chaudron Gille, provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs. "I offer my heartiest congratulations to all of the award recipients. They exemplify how #UNGleads."

Dr. Steven Lloyd, vice provost, also offered his appreciation for these students' accomplishments.

"Our annual awards ceremonies recognize and honor students who demonstrate academic excellence. Because these awards are earned through determination and hard work and often with the support of family and friends and under the tutelage of faculty and staff mentors, the ceremony also allows us to celebrate the entire UNG community," Lloyd said. "Although we are not able to present these awards during a traditional ceremony with family and friends, we are proud to recognize these outstanding students and their academic achievements in and out of the classroom."

Retired Army Col. Joseph Matthews, commandant of cadets, echoed that sentiment. He said senior cadets will receive their awards by mail, but returning cadets will have a special ceremony at a later date.

"I wish we could have recognized each cadet publicly this semester," Matthews said. "But every one of the award recipients has excelled in the Corps of Cadets and their families can be proud of their performance.”
