CONYERS—Five Conyers and Covington residents who achieved academic excellence in their coursework during the spring semester were recently recognized at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

ABAC cites its top academic students each semester on the President’s Honor List, the Dean’s Honor List and the Distinguished Achievement List.

The President’s Honor List is the highest academic honor possible for ABAC students. ABAC President David Bridges said each student on the list attained an “A” in every subject, resulting in a perfect 4.0 grade point average. The students had to carry a minimum of 12 hours of academic work.

Dr. Jerry Baker, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, said the students who qualified for the Dean’s Honor List attained a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and carried at least 12 hours of academic work.

The Distinguished Achievement List is composed of students who complete between six and 11 hours of academic work with a grade point average of 3.5 or higher. The purpose of this list is to recognize excellence and scholastic achievement among part-time students.

The following students were honored:


Dean’s List: Savannah Hayes.

Distinguished List: Karly Koch.


President’s List: Sarah Hammond.

 Dean’s List: Elizabeth Buttram and Emma Raines.
