GSU Professor awarded Patriot Award

STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Going to college can be hard.

Doing it while serving your country is even harder.  

A military group recognized Georgia Southern Professor David Dudley for his help to SSgt. Amber Augustine.

Her college career, so far, has included two overseas deployments. She said Dr. Dudley helped her stay on track.

"The thing that makes Dr. Dudley different is he does some things for me," said Augustine. "Instead of making me fill out papers to get into a class, he does it for me."

Because of two deployments, it's taken Augustine six years to finish college, but she finally graduates in May.
