Name: Katie Shoemake    

Education: University of West Georgia, 2013    

Hometown: Carrollton, GA

Recent Accomplishments: Honors College graudate, cum laude. Accepted into the MBA program at UWG

Why UWG? I attended UWG because I'm from Carrollton; my mom graduated from West Georgia when they were still the braves; and it is affordable. I was an honors student in high school, so I joined the Honors College.

I love the Honors College because... I got lucky getting a job as a student assistant at the Honors College because it has led to so many opportunities for me, and I have become a part of the HC family. The Honors College has become my home away from home these past four years, and that is what I love about it.

Career Goals: I hope to have my Masters Degree and be employeed fulltime in the management field or some type of administrative position.

Life's Mantra: I have had the hardest time coming up with this because my sense of humor is basically sarcasm, and sarcasm doesn't always translate so well in writing, but if I've learned anything from college it is that hard work and the ability to learn will get you places. You don't have to be the best at everything, but if you are willing to put forth the effort and learn new things you will succeed.
