The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia (USG) recently honored Fort Valley State University (FVSU) student Tamia Brown during its annual Academic Recognition Day. The event was held on February 8, 2022 during a Board of Regents meeting in Atlanta. Brown was one of the students chosen from each of the system's 26 public colleges and universities. Each student best represents the system's highest scholastic ideals, as selected by their individual institutions. These students have a high GPA, strive for excellence and have the ability to share knowledge in various areas of expertise.

Brown is a supply chain and logistics management major at FVSU and currently serves as a residential assistant. Brown also works as a logistics manager trainee at Warner Robins AFB.

Academic Recognition Day began 34 years ago as a celebration of Georgia students' academic achievement. The honorees receive a resolution from the Georgia House of Representatives, along with a letter of commendation from USG Acting Chancellor Teresa MacCartney.

In her letter of commendation, Acting Chancellor MacCartney congratulated the honorees and said that their "outstanding academic achievements merit this well-deserved special recognition."

"On behalf of the Board of Regents and the entire University System, I congratulate you on this recognition," MacCartney said. "I wish you all the best as you move forward toward a truly successful life, whether in your career or in service to your community."
