Julianne Sutton, of Braselton, was among eleven students recognized March 1 during the Women of UNG's Leadership Luncheon on UNG's Dahlonega Campus.
Leanne Minghini, chairwoman of the Women of UNG, said the leadership luncheon recognized outstanding alumnae and students who have excelled in their collegiate and professional careers and supported the university. It is held annually on a Sunday in March, which is Women's History Month.
"What better time to recognize them," she said.
Nearly 30 female UNG students were nominated by deans and professors for the honor. A committee selected 11 to be recognized.
"These women had to display the leadership qualities of integrity, initiative, courage, humility, responsibility and positivity," Minghini said. "We are really excited to honor these students who stepped up and took the initiative to get involved and lead."
