S. Sonny Kim, an associate professor in the University of Georgia College of Engineering, has been named 2021 Georgia Engineer of the Year by the Georgia Society of Professional Engineers (GSPE).

Presented annually by GSPE, the Engineer of the Year Awards honor licensed engineers who have made outstanding contributions to the engineering profession, the public welfare, and humankind.

“It is my great honor to be selected for this remarkable honor,” said Kim. “It would have not been possible without the strong support and assistance from my amazing colleagues and students.”

Kim’s teaching and research is focused on sustainable infrastructure and materials, saltmarsh restoration, and the use of nondestructive testing, remote sensing, and machine learning in infrastructure monitoring.

Today is the 18th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Freedom Breakfast. Join us as we celebrate the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and recognize dedicated individuals in our community who are working to make his dream a reality. This year's keynote speaker is Hamilton Holmes, Jr., son of Hamilton Holmes, Sr., one of the first Black students to desegregate UGA in 1961, along with Charlayne Hunter-Gault, paving the way for Holmes, Jr. to earn his bachelor’s degree in marketing from the university in 1990.

We are glad to see that Hawkinsville is using the branding work we did for them on some new merchandise! Great things happen when #ugapartners work together.

Hawkinsville continues to take advantage of their branding work with the UGA Carl Vinson Institute of Government. Hawkinsville debuted their billboards and other items with their “Come Home” brand back in the spring but with Covid in mind, recently unveiled a facemask with the historic Hawkinsville cupola and the Come Home logo on it as well.

Archway Partnership funding partner the Hawkinsville-Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce is responsible for the merchandise around the brand & the masks have proven to be a popular item.
Here, Pulaski County Archway Professional Sherrie Raleigh models the new merch. #ugapartners
