Waycross College - UGA CAES Transfer Agreement:

On Thursday of this week the new transfer agreements for the AES and Ag Ed majors between the UGA CAES and Tifton Campus and Waycross College was announced. The event was held at Waycross College. The president of Waycross College, Dr. David Palmer, presided and three separate events were held. The first session was a media event and included Waycross College administration, their Foundation Board, local government officials, and UGA CAES administration and faculty. The second session was an information session for Waycross College faculty, and the final session was for potential students. The event was excellent and there was an enthusiastic response from all involved. Participating from UGA Athens were Dr. Joe Broder, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, and Brice Nelson, Student Recruitment Coordinator, and from Tifton were Drs. Joe West, George Vellidis, Peggy Ozias-Akins, John Beasley, and John Ruberson. Erin Womack was instrumental in planning the event, and Teri Hughes and Leanne Chafin provided support. In addition, five UGA Tifton Campus students, including four ambassadors (Brock Ward, Michael Lee Barnes, Tom Lanier, Chrissa Tatum) and Justin Barber (who transferred to UGA Tifton from Waycross College) participated and were very helpful in the program. This partnership has the potential to expand our student recruitment opportunities.
