Alumni Heritage Award: Barbara “Babs” McAlister ’62
Nearly since the day Babs finished her education degree at GSCW in 1962, “Babs” has been an alumni leader. Babs rarely gets the limelight for her tireless dedication and selfless service to her alma mater. In the past few years Babs has been one of the volunteer leaders for the “Golden Slipper” reunions in Milledgeville and Atlanta. She also is chairing the Class of 1962 reunion to fantastic results. Babs has had a leadership role on the Alumni Board chairing the very critical Scholarship Committee for the past several years. In short, Babs is a servant leader that demonstrates quiet leadership and serves as an example to us all. In addition to her Georgia College “work,” Babs serves in volunteer leadership roles at her church and throughout the Palmetto community.
