Childs wins 1 of 2 ABAC scholarships

TIFTON — A Colquitt County student is one of two who won $1,000 scholarships at the first Stallion Scholars Evening at Abraham Baldwin College.

Twenty-five students and their parents from around the state attended the event. Two of the students, Kira Carreira from Camden County High School and Ashley Childs from Colquitt County High School, each won scholarships worth $1,000.

An invitation-only affair, Stallion Scholars Evening offered high achieving high school seniors an opportunity to learn what ABAC has to offer students of their academic caliber. During the evening, deans and other administrative staff shared information about bachelor’s degree programs in a variety of disciplines, transfer agreements with universities in associate degree areas, the ABAC Honors Program, and study abroad programs.

“In the past, students in the local area have sometimes thought of ABAC as a back-up college,” said Donna Webb, Director of Enrollment Management at ABAC.  “But with expanding premier four-year programs and the Regents Engineering Transfer Program with Georgia Tech, more top students are realizing that ABAC can offer them the same quality academic programs as much larger schools with the individual attention and family atmosphere that ABAC has built its reputation on for so long.”

Webb said that ABAC plans to make its Stallion Scholars Evening an annual event, with the next one planned for October.

Webb also invited all prospective students to attend the ABAC Stallion Day on Feb. 16. Stallion Day is designed as an opportunity for students and their families to get a great look at the campus, talk to advisors in various programs of study, and find out more about housing and financial aid opportunities.

Students can register for Stallion Day at www.abac.edu/stalliondays.

  • Ga Clipping.JPG ‘Low maintenance’ doesn’t mean ‘no maintenance’

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

  • Kichler, Jeremy.jpg Nematodes in my garden!

    I often get questions about controlling nematodes in the home vegetable garden. Since there are no home gardener chemicals we can get economically for nematode control then the answers get few.

    Questions about fire ants in the garden are common around the Extension office. Fire ants can be a nuisance and they can damage some vegetable crops such as okra and Irish potatoes. Fewer fire ant mounds would result from tilling your garden but a few mounds may persist in heavy mulch or close to vegetable plants. In these cases fire ant baits or mound treatments may be in order.

    There’s much more to enjoy in your home landscape beyond the basic plants and flowers. There’s awesome music and movies galore simply provided by nature through wildlife for you. Add colors, movements, and sounds that make your home landscape appear more alive and vibrant in your quest to welcome birds and butterflies into your space.

    Summer will officially be here on June 21! Oh, but how it feels like it is already here with our long days and high temps. The months of June, July and August have often been referenced as the “relaxing trifecta” of summer. It is the season to get outside and enjoy everything God and mother nature has made available to us as a recreational opportunity for personal enjoyment and emotional satisfaction.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
