Sewell named interim dean at ABAC

TIFTON — A Moultrie woman has been named an interim dean at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

Darbie Sewell of Moultrie will serve as interim dean for the School of Human Services.

Sewell joined the ABAC faculty in 2002. She is an ABAC alumna who went on to receive her bachelor’s degree in family and consumer sciences from the University of Georgia in 2000 and her master’s degree in family and consumer sciences education from UGA in 2001. She earned her doctorate degree in family and consumer sciences education from Iowa State University.

The college announced the appointment of six deans this week in conjunction with the establishment of the new academic schools of study.

“The deans are at the forefront of creating the academic path forward into the future for the college,” said Niles Reddick, vice president of academic affairs at ABAC. “Their collective experience as faculty and administrators allows for a smooth transition.”

The dean for the School of Agriculture and Natural Resources is Tim Marshall. Marshall, who lives in Adel, received his associate degree in agriculture from ABAC in 1977 and a bachelor’s degree in animal sciences from the University of Georgia. He then received his master’s degree in beef cattle management and a doctorate in beef genetics from the University of Florida. Marshall has served as chair of the Division of Agriculture and Forest Resources at ABAC since 2006.

Jeff Gibbs will serve as dean of the School of Business. Gibbs has been a faculty member at ABAC since 1999, when he was named chair of the Division of Business Administration. He received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in economics and his Ed.D. degree from the University of Georgia.

Wanda Golden has been named the dean of the School of Health Sciences. Golden earned her associate degree in nursing from ABAC, and her BSN and MSN degrees from Valdosta State University. She has been at ABAC as an instructor since 1999, serving as chair of the Division of Nursing since 2000.

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

Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
