Congratulations to Sky Jackson, our GWC Recognition of Student Excellence recipient!

GWC Recognition of Student Excellence - Sky Jackson

The President’s Office and Academic Senate have partnered together to honor outstanding students for excellence in the classroom, campus community, or in their personal lives. Sky was nominated by Chemistry instructor, Mark Holoboski and was honored at the Planning and Budget meeting on February 13, 2019 by Academic Senate President, Martie Ramm Engle, and GWC President, Tim McGrath.

Professor Holoboski wrote:

“Sky is a USMC veteran.  From the first day I met him, he has expressed an intense desire to make a positive impact on society and the planet by studying and improving methods of farming, such as vertical farming. He is very passionate about this subject, and very sincere. He is the first student at GWC I have ever recommended a career in academia to”.


We appreciate the support of our faculty members who have submitted such wonderful nominations on behalf of their students.  The nomination period is ongoing so faculty may submit a nomination whenever you find that special student who is deserving of recognition!  Nomination Form [click here].
