Albany students reassigned as UGA Professor investigated

February 5, 2008

Albany -- A University of Georgia assistant professor, teaching doctoral pharmacy classes in Albany through the Phoebe Putney Hospital Doctor Training Program, has been removed from contact with students after complaints that he punched one.

Dr. Shawn Holaway is accused of attacking a doctoral candidate at a private Homecoming party in Athens November 2nd, hitting him at least three times. The student says Holaway was drunk.

Holaway has been teaching pharmacy to students in Albany, and students in Athens by satellite.

University Spokespersons say Holaway has been reassigned to web instruction, but they are not sure if he is still in Albany. University of Georgia Spokesperson Tom Jackson said "he is reassigned at this time, so he has no contact with students pending the outcome of the investigation. That includes termination, depending on how the investigation comes out."

Dr. Holaway also conducted a two year study on blood pressure with athletes at Dougherty County Public Schools, and was often on the sidelines during athletic events.

Phoebe Putney Hospital officials declined comment. Holaway did not answer repeated phone calls.
