Cleveland, GA (April 20, 2011) - Truett-McConnell College announces White County resident, George Warwick, as the recipient of the 2011 President's Achievement Award.george and dr. caner 1

Warwick began working at Truett-McConnell College in 1972. He first managed work-study students but then became a full-time security guard. He was later named the Director of Security until he retired in December of 2004 at the age of 65. Dedicated to TMC, Warwick became a part-time employee again in January of 2005. But due to his medical condition, Warwick had to leave his position in October of 2010.

When asked why he loved Truett-McConnell College, Warwick simply replied that it was his home.

“I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed working with the students. I don’t reckon I had an enemy,” he added. “I’ve really enjoyed my life. I hated to leave when I did because of my health.”

Warwick reminisced about his years at TMC and remembered a time when he was certified to tote a weapon and take students to jail. During those years, Warwick stated that security guards were armed and even had police-style cars. He echoed positive sentiments about his time at TMC and still visits the campus when he can. Unfortunately, Warwick’s health leaves him weak most of the time now. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and has been working with doctors in Atlanta as he improves every day.  

The crowd stood up and applauded as George Warwick was honored with the President's Achievement Award at TMC Honors Chapel. He has been a great friend and employee of TMC.

“I felt good about the award. I never thought I’d receive anything like that,” remarked Warwick

Warwick currently resides in Cleveland, GA and is married to his wife, Polly.
