Helping others through service, health care

Senior Anna Agyao always knew she wanted to go into the health care field.

“My mom is a nurse and so are several other family members,” said the nursing major. “I came to Georgia College because I knew we had one of the best nursing programs in the state.”

Aside from her devotion to care for others, she also has an enthusiasm for service.

“In high school, I got involved with community service, and when I came to Georgia College, I got connected with Gamma Sigma Sigma service sorority and The GIVE Center,” said Agyao.

As her involvement continued to grow, her leadership roles also expanded. Through her connections in Gamma Sig and with The GIVE Center, she was able to found two new organizations on campus.

“The more I got connected with campus resources, the more confidence I got and the more I took on news leadership opportunities,” she said. “One of the organizations I started is called To Write Love on Her Arms. The goal of the organization is to spread awareness about mental health issues, which is something really close to my heart since I lost a friend in high school to suicide.”

To Write Love on Her Arms works to encourage all people since life, and especially college, an be tough. They do that through, among other things, writing encouraging letters to pass out during midterms and around Valentine’s Day.

“As soon as you get to know Anna, you can tell she has a heart for service. Everything she does has service at the core— from being part of many service efforts to the organizations she is part of to leadership roles, she takes on service even in the career she has selected,” Kendall Stiles, senior director for community engagement at Georgia College and the GIVE Center.

Agyao also founded GC ONE Campaign that focuses on ending homelessness and hunger.

“The thing that stands out the most to me is the way she has a passion for and has either started service organizations, reactivated service organizations or tried to take the service organizations to the next level,” said Stiles. “She has a servant's heart and that shows when she talks to students and gets them more engaged with those organizations and/ or causes. She has left a legacy of helping others find their passions and become connected.”

Now as president of Gamma Sig and involved in several other campus activities, Agyao can be assured her impact at Georgia College will be felt for years to come.

“Georgia College is a really special campus,” she said. “I’ve had a lot of support through the years from people all across campus, and I hope I’ve been able to leave a legacy by inspiring others to become leaders and keep working to make a difference.”
