Former ABAC president unveils honorary picture

November 22, 2004

Tifton- Monday, along with his wife, former Abraham Baldwin College president Mike Vollmer unveiled his presidential honorary picture that will hang on the campus in Tift Hall.

Vollmer was the ninth president, and the only one to have a photograph rather than a painted portrait.

"What I really wanted was a picture rather than a portrait, and that picture portraying what I really think is the most valuable asset here on the campus and that's our students," Vollmer says.

Vollmer resigned the college presidency in August to head the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education in Atlanta.
