  • When Jacqueline Daniel was 12 years old, she met a 3-year-old girl named Macy who was living with disabilities. Although she did not talk, communicating love came naturally to Macy.
    "The more time I spent with Macy, the more I learned from her," said Daniel, a 2004 University of North Georgia (UNG) graduate.
    Twenty-five years later, Daniel finds herself offering programs to individuals like Macy and their families. Daniel is the founder of ConnectAbility, a Dahlonega-based nonprofit organization that is creating communities where people of all abilities are valued, included and empowered.
    "Having someone with a disability in a family impacts everyone in the family," she said. "We provide them the opportunity for skill building and building social networks."

  • UNG's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted its seventh Make-A-Wish child on Wednesday as Dahlonega's Hope Nix was signed to join the UNG women's basketball team.
    Hope and her parents Nate and Lenore, as well as sisters Katelen, Josie and Hannah, arrived at the UNG Convocation Center for "Hope's Magical Day" and received a welcome from UNG Director of Athletics Lindsay Reeves and head women's basketball coach Buffie Burson.
    At halftime, a special live video look-in on her teammates led to a special message from three princesses – Belle, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella – before the trio magically appeared in the Convocation Center to grant the Hope with her wish of a seven-day trip to Disney World. On her trip, Hope is scheduled to have breakfast with the three princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table in the castle at the Magic Kingdom.

  • "At the beginning, some students are scared of poetry," said Dr. Anastasia Lin, associate professor of English at the University of North Georgia (UNG). "It's gotten a bad reputation."
    That's why Lin is looking forward to the upcoming visit of Marilyn Chin, an Asian-American poet who is the 2018 Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets.
    "People like Marilyn Chin reinvent poetry in ways that are exciting and fresh," Lin said. "Many students envision poetry in box. … Her poetry defies all boxes."
