The coronavirus has affected students this academic school year and many students were in distress due to the cancellation of the Annual Honors convocation Ceremony. Savannah State university took proper precautions to keep students, faculty, and staff safe during this hard time. However, the ceremony does not demonstrate you as a scholar.

“Your hard work, persistence, and determination have allowed you to be considered an Academic Scholar,” Interim Provost and vice president, Dr. Sampentria R. McFall.

On Friday, April 2nd, Interim Provost and Vice President, Dr. Samentria R. McFall Applauded students showing academic success. The savannah State office of provost recognized those who have earned 31 hours or more while maintaining a cumulative institutional GPA of 3.0 or higher.

On April 7, 2021, Savannah State distributed medallions and blue ribbons to show recognition for student success for those earning a 3.0 or higher. Students who maintained a cumulative GPA of 4.0 earned the Gold medallion, students maintaining a GPA of 3.5- 3.99 earned the Silver medallion, while students maintaining a GPA of 3.0-3.49 earning the Bronze medallion. President’s List, Dean's lists, and Honor roll students also received Blue honor ribbons as recognition of student success.

Although the Office of Provost canceled the Annual Honors ceremony, “The Powerhouse of the South,” the Savannah States Band conducted a mini-performance in the Student Union on April 7, 2021. Band members used this opportunity to celebrate and show recognition to the Fall and spring, 2021 academic achievers while following Covid-19 precautions.

Savannah State office of Provost congratulates Honor students and their accomplishments thus far. The Fellow tigers have shown and demonstrated the capability of academic success. “Thank you for being a model of academic achievement, you are a scholar,” Interim Provost and Vice President, Dr. Samentria R. McFall.
