TUGA Times

Welcome new members of the UGA Tifton Campus:
It is my pleasure to introduce the two newest members of the UGA Tifton Campus.
Debi Walker and Meredith Rutland
Joining us on Monday of this week were Ms. Debi Walker (left) and Ms. Meredith Rutland (right). Debi is an administrative assistant and provides support for my office and for Academic Programs and is often the first face you will see when coming to our offices, or the voice you'll hear when you call. Meredith is the recruiter for Academic Programs and will be bringing new students to our existing and new academic majors. You will find Debi and Meredith very approachable and helpful, so please welcome them to our campus, and make a point of stopping by to say hello.
