Last Friday, Dr. Saba Jallow, was honored by the GS Department of Political Science and International Studies. Family, friends and co-workers gathered at the GSU Nessmith Lane, Performing Arts Center Atrium to honor him and reflect on his many contributions to the community and the University.

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of a key to the city by Statesboro Mayor Jonathan McCollar to Dr. Saba Jallow. Mayor McCollar and his wife Adrianne were both students of Dr. Jallow and were introduced by him.

“Adrianne and I had the distinct pleasure of presenting the Key to the City to Dr. Saba M. Jallow . I can’t begin to put into words what he has meant for my life and many young people that have called him a mentor. In short, Doc we all love you!!!” said Mayor McCollar.

Over and over the speakers shared how Dr. Jallow went out of his way to welcome students and fellow faculty members into the community and help them find their way to excel and make a difference.

Dr. Jallow is married to Renata Newbill-Jallow a local public defender who leads that office for the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit.

Grice Connect wishes Dr. Jallow the best as he enters this next chapter in his life.
