University of Georgia-Griffin campus announced that four students have been awarded the exclusive designation of Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities.

Among the honorees was Kaitlyn Bruce from Oxford. Nominated by faculty and administration, students are selected based upon outstanding merit, leadership and accomplishments.

In addition to maintaining a high grade point average, Kaitlyn, a senior majoring in special education, is president of the Student Advisory Council; president and founding member of the Griffin campus chapter of CEC Inspire, a group dedicated to informing others about children with special needs; and is the assignment coordinator for the Griffin Ambassadors.

"Who's Who is one of the most highly-regarded, longstanding honors programs, and we are thrilled that these outstanding students have been selected," said Doris Christopher, assistant vice president for academic affairs and director of academic programs at UGA-Griffin. "Their achievements are a great example of the type of talented and successful individuals we have studying a broad range of disciplines at UGA-Griffin."

The students were recently honored at a special ceremony at the Griffin Rotary Club and each received a certificate from the Who's Who organization commemorating the honor.
