Georgia College senior receives statewide leadership award

Juawn JacksonTwo-term Georgia College Student Government Association (SGA) President Juawn Jackson was chosen as the winner of the 2015-2016 Willis J. Potts SAC Leadership Award. Selected by his fellow SGA presidents across the state, the award recognizes Jackson as an outstanding student leader among all USG student leaders.

Since it was first presented in 2009, the Willis J. Potts SAC Leadership Award has signified the highest honor awarded by the University System of Georgia’s Student Advisory Council (SAC). The award is named after former Regent Willis Potts, who left a legacy of leadership during his tenure as a Board of Regents (BOR) member and chair.

“Juawn has proven his dedication and passion for the USG through his willingness to host a SAC conference and his excellent attendance at University System of Georgia events. His leadership and presence has been invaluable to the Student Advisory Council,” said Dr. Joyce Jones, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs for the Board of Regents for the University System of Georgia in a letter sent to campus administration.

The recipient of this award is voted on by current members of SAC in honor of Regent Potts’ unselfish, tireless efforts to serve the students of the University System of Georgia.

“It is truly an honor to have been selected by my fellow SGA presidents for this award,” said Jackson. “Serving as SGA president for the past two years, has allowed me to work closely with some of Georgia's brightest and selfless leaders. Together, we have accomplished so much for the students within our system.”

The political science major graduates in May and plans to enroll at Mercer University’s Higher Education Leadership Program.

“My experiences in SGA and serving on the Student Advisory Council has allowed me at times to see ‘how bacon is made’ within the higher education world. As a result of these experiences, my passion for education, specifically higher education, has strengthened,” he said.

Jackson will receive a plaque and special recognition at the May 10, 2016, Board meeting in Atlanta.

Aside from serving on SGA, Jackson is also involved with American Democracy Project, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Council of Student Ambassadors, Collegiate 4-H and the GC Gospel Choir.
