Dr. Beheruz Sethna Commended in Senate Resolution

Dr. Beheruz N. Sethna, president of the State University of West Georgia, has been honorably commended in a Senate Resolution (No. 92), which was adopted in the Georgia State Senate on February 11th. The Senate members recognized "the vital role that [Dr. Sethna] has played in leadership and his deep personal commitment to education in this state," and commended him "for his many years of efficient, effective, unselfish, and dedicated service as president of the State University of West Georgia."

In January of 2003, Dr. Sethna made the Georgia Trend magazine list of the 100 Most Influential Georgians, joining the ranks of Sonny Perdue, Arthur Blank, and Ted Turner. He has been repeatedly recognized in Carroll County, first as the Citizen of the Year in 1999, then by Times-Georgian magazine as first (along with UWG) in their list of Movers, Shakers, and Newsmakers for 2002. Dr. Sethna is the first person of an ethnic minority to become president of a Georgia university that is not predominantly ethnic. He is also the first person of Indian origin to be president of any American university.
