AMERICUS (April 25, 2012)—During Georgia Southwestern State University’s (GSW) Honors Convocation earlier this month, art major Sunni Ann Zemblowski, a graduate of Americus-Sumter High School, was presented with the University’s highest academic honor, the 2012 Outstanding Scholar Award.
The recipient of this award represents Georgia Southwestern during the University System of Georgia’s (USG) annual Academic Recognition Day in the Georgia General Assembly. Zemblowski was one of only 35 students in the USG honored on that day.
The Outstanding Scholar Award represents superb scholastic achievement. To be considered for this award, the student must have a near-perfect grade point average (GPA) and be a senior. Zemblowski’s GPA is perfect – a 4.0.
While a student at Southwestern, Zemblowski participated in a study abroad trip to China with the Department of Visual Arts. She is a member of the GSW Honors Program and will graduate with Honors Program distinction in May with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art.
