TIFTON — Students who achieved academic excellence in their course work during the fall term were recently recognized at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.  ABAC cites its top academic students each semester on the President’s List, the Dean’s List, and the Distinguished Achievement List.
The President’s 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.
Jerry Baker, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, said the students who qualified for the Dean’s 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.
Local students include:
Dean’s List: Benjamin Arnold of Americus, Forrest Crowder of Buena Vista

Distinguished List: Fred Langston and Pooja Patel, both of Americus, and William Sellars of Ellaville
President’s List: Ginger Orton of Ellaville
