CONYERS, GA— There may receive higher honors, but as Derek Marchman stated “when I received a notice from my alma mater recognizing me for professional achievement it was very special, something that I will treasure forever.” That occurred when Georgia College and State University (GCSU) in Milledgeville acknowledged Derek Marchman, an 87’graduate, in the Alumni Profile in the Fall 2022 issue of Connection, The Magazine for Alumni and Friends.
The title of the article, Ultimate Honor, on pages 28-29, offers an overview of Marchman’s success with an emphasis on his role on a state and national level, leading up to his acceptance of the Office of Victims of Crime 2022 Victims’ Rights Award presented by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland this past April. Marchman’s response was a mixture of pride and humility of the honor by GCSU. He stated, “I was most surprised by the request and how well they developed the article. Unlike other media posts, GCSU was very accurate in reporting the facts.”
However, Marchman observed spending time with GCSU’s President, Cathy Cox, was phenomenal. He concluded that “GCSU and the regent system is so fortunate to have the caliber of President Cox serving our students.”
