The award was presented as part of the SACSCOC virtual national meeting on Dec. 6. The presentation was made by Dr. Ivan Allen, Central Georgia Technical College president, in his role as President of the SACSCOC Board of Trustees.

"Her colleagues  note that her knowledge of the standards and her collegial manner sets a good tone for visits," Dr. Allen said. "Dr. Anglin, thank you for your service."

A reliable participant for SACSCOC, Dr. Anglin has served on 21 committee reviews, including two cluster offsite reviews, and has chaired six of them. She served as a member of the SACSCOC Board of Trustees from 2008 to 2013 and also as a member of the Committee on Compliance and Reports during that time.

"Thank you for this honor," said Dr. Anglin. "Serving on committees and on the Board of Trustees has been a great experience; to be able to work with and learn from so many wonderful professionals from colleges across our region."
