The Patty T. Powell Award Announced

For those of you who were unable to attend the annual graduate Awards Night, it was a special one this year. It's always a great event, as outstanding students are honored. The recently retired Patty Powell returned to campus for the evening. Patty was there to present students with awards. But the students had awards of their own for her. The Student Government Association (SGA), both from this past school year, and the upcoming school year, presented Patty with awards to show their appreciation. It was an emotional moment. Vol State also announced a new student award that will be given out each year in her name. The Patty T. Powell Award will be presented to a graduate who has shown respect and compassion for others. Seth Walker was recognized as the first student to receive the honor. You can see the reaction from Patty and Seth.
