"How could I not go” was the question posed by Jordan Bracewell, a junior and rhetoric major and political science minor who just arrived at the Regent’s Park College at the University of Oxford in England to study this semester.
All agencies have employee turnover. So, each year you have employees who are not familiar with Driver Expectations and the Pitfalls of the State’s Auto Coverage.
This year, Materials Management has teamed with DOAS Office of Fleet Management to get the word directly to the end-user, your drivers. C.G. Lawrence with the state’s Fleet Management Division will be presenting a Safety and Coverage training on Monday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m.-noon in Peabody Auditorium. All drivers, (occasional or daily) along with supervisors, anyone involved with vehicles or anyone who drives on state business should attend this training. Questions like the ones below will be answered at this training:
- Am I covered when I stop for lunch?
- How about in a rental?
- Can my spouse go with me to a conference?
- What must I do if I get a Report My Driving call?
- What accidents need to be reported?
- Can my driving privileges be revoked?
- What are the latest Safety Tips?
- How’s my agency doing?
Thousands of drivers have attended over the past few years and left with a clear understanding of the state’s auto and liability coverage. C.G will provide a comprehensive driver safety refresher and insight into the Revised Fleet Manual, OPB Policy 10 and the use of state vehicles.
Protect your drivers. Let them ask questions before some life changing event.
Hope to see you on Oct. 10.
Fall midterm course feedback (i.e., midterm grades) for all Area A-E core courses is due by Wednesday, Oct. 5, at 9 a.m. Midterm course feedback may also be entered for all other courses.

All teaching faculty and staff are welcome to join the Innovative Course-building Group (IC-bG) for dinner at Amici’s Cafe at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5. The topic for this dinner is “Tackling Your Challenges." Instead of always relying on the things we do well in the classroom, let’s try to tackle our challenges together. Think about aspects of your teaching that you think could use some improvement, and we can try to help each other figure out ways to make those improvements.
The Innovative Course-Building Group (IC-bG) is a faculty-led, grass-roots social network for learning that supports teaching faculty and staff across disciplines.
For more information, please contact:
Please see our Wordpress blog page where you can follow us, sign up for blog updates or just get more information about the group. https://icbg.wordpress.com
Keep an eye out for upcoming event announcements. We would love to have you join us.

Georgia College has won the school’s first Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Student-Athlete Committee (SAAC) Challenge Award. This award is presented annually to the one PBC institution whose SAAC displays overall best commitment to academics, sportsmanship and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Points are tallied throughout the academic year in six categories: attendance at conference-wide SAAC meetings, community service which includes engagement and the dollar amount of funds raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, number of PBC Elite 15 Award winners at the institution, percentage of PBC Presidential Honor roll students and points earned towards the PBC Team Sportsmanship Awards.
“I’m very proud of our student-athletes and our members of SAAC,” said head volleyball coach and SACC advisor Gretchen Krumdieck. “They have worked very hard in the classroom, on the court and field, and in our community. They have done some extraordinary things and have a lot more planned for this year!”
Georgia College athletics had a record-breaking 136 student-athletes receive the PBC Presidential Honor Roll for the 2015-16 academic year. Ally Barys (Ladera Ranch, California) of the 2015-16 soccer team was among these scholars and also received the PBC Elite 15 award alongside Evyn Smith (Long Island, New York) of the men’s basketball team.
Both the men’s and women’s tennis teams received the PBC Team Sportsmanship Awards to add to the points which helped to place Georgia College at the top to claim the Challenge Award.
The Georgia College SAAC looks forward to continuing to promote student-athlete success in academics, sportsmanship, and community engagement for the 2016-2017 school year.
