ABAC centennial class graduates

May 2, 2008

Tifton--They took their last tests and turned in those final papers, and Friday night 135 students at ABAC in Tifton got their diplomas.

It's a special year, because these graduates are members of the centennial class at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.

The college has changed a lot since 1908.

It recently added several 4-year programs to prepare more students to enter the work force.

"We added two brand new four year degrees and they're doing wonderful. We've got a brand new degree in diversified agriculture and also a brand new degree in turf course management and gulf course management. The industry said they wanted four year degree graduates not just tow year degrees, so we're able to do that because of our state college Status." Said Mike Chason, the Public Relations Director at ABAC

ABAC currently has a record enrollment, nearly 3, 700 students representing 14 states and nine countries.
