Each month, students from certain divisions selected for that month are nominated for the Student Excellence Award by their instructors. The student of excellence is selected based on a number of criteria, including grades, work ethic, membership in clubs and organizations, and number of program completions.

For this month, SGTC has recognized students in the Health and Personal Services programs. In addition to Sadecky, nominees included Jasmine Williams of Bonaire, practical nursing, nominated by Jennifer Childs; Derrick Carson of Butler, Culinary Arts, nominated by Ricky Watzlowick; Christianna Smith of Albany, Early Childhood Care and Education, nominated by Jaye Cripe; Brandon Price of Americas, Barbering, nominated by Andre Robinson; and Sha’Brea Hicks of Cordele, cosmetology, nominated by Dorothea Lusane McKenzie.

As the winner, Sadecky received a plaque of recognition, a personal letter of recommendation from SGTC President Dr. John Watford, and a $50 check for her achievements. Additionally, his name will be displayed on SGTC’s digital marquee as well as inscribed on a plaque at Hicks Hall among the past Student Excellence recipients. Each nominee received a certificate of nomination and an exclusive Student of Excellence t-shirt.
