During this year’s Student Government Association leadership banquet, Dean Gary May was surprised with the James E. Dull Administrator of the Year Award.
May was selected for this award by the Undergraduate House of Representatives, which represents the official student opinion as every member of the body speaks for a class or degree program at Georgia Tech.
“The Administrator of the Year award goes to an outstanding member of the Georgia Tech Administration. The body voted and believed that Dean May was the most deserving person of this award for this school year due to his work and his love for students,” says Richard Wang, Speaker of the Undergraduate House of Representatives.
The banquet, which caters to around 100 students and faculty involved with the Undergraduate Student Government Association, was held on April 25. The annual event is themed “Celebrate, Reflect, and Inspire”; that is, to laud accomplishments from the previous year, contemplate the impacts made on campus, and motivate the newest members of SGA.
The namesake of the award, James E. Dull, was Georgia Tech’s former Dean of Students and served the school for decades. He was known for his successful peaceful integration of the Institute, and the award is a testament to May’s hard work to increase diversity on campus.
