With graduation exactly one month away, I was thrilled to have an opportunity to honor the women who has my fabulous mentor, advisor and friend: Dr. Betty Jones. She won faculty advisor of the year at UGA's student organization awards, and I cannot think of anyone more deserving! I can directly attribute much of the success I've had in college—and will have in my future—to her. Time and time again she has gone out of her way to make me better, both as a PR professional and as person. Her door is always open and I've spent many afternoons in her office or in her home seeking advice, celebrating success, ranting in frustration and just talking about life. I have had few people impact me the way Dr. Jones has these past years and I am beyond blessed to have her in my life. I know she will forever be a part of it.
