Victor K. Wilson, vice president of student affairs, was honored as Faculty Member of the Year by the UGA Black Male Leadership Society at its inaugural awards ceremony April 25.

The Black Male Leadership Society is a cohort of student leaders who strive to establish and foster a sense of unity, strength and love among black men and uplift the community at large.

By selecting a Faculty Member of the Year, BMLS members recognize an individual who has played an integral role in developing and progressing the society's efforts within the campus community.

The organization's president, Charles E. King Jr. said the society selected Wilson because of his unwavering commitment.

"Vice President Wilson has been a mentor, an adviser, a motivator, a voice, a speaker and so much more to our organization and each of our members," King said.

Wilson, a 1982 and 1987 UGA graduate, said the award is especially meaningful in light of his own experiences as black male student.

"I faced hurdles and trials, but I overcame them with pride as a UGA student," Wilson said. "I strongly appreciate the effort of these student leaders to enhance the student experience on our campus."
