During the University System of Georgia Board of Regents meeting in August, Chancellor Sonny Perdue presented four trophies to the institutions that had the highest summer enrollment growth.
South Georgia State College Interim President Dr. Greg Tanner accepted the award for leading the state colleges with 14.7% growth in enrollment in the summer semester. University of West Georgia, Albany State and Augusta University were all recognized as leaders in their respective size categories.
Calling the trophy, the “Chancellor’s Cup”, Perdue challenged the recipients to keep the trophy through fall semester. He plans to present the award at the conclusion of each semester to the college in each sector with the highest enrollment growth.
“We are honored to be a recipient of the first Chancellor’s Cup recognizing our increased summer enrollment. This means much more to us than simply the numbers associated with the 14.7% growth,” said Dr. Tanner. “It means that the work our SGSC team is doing is truly making a difference in the lives of more students. This trophy is representative of all those who have a part in making our college a place that welcomes students and helps them achieve their goals.
