THUMBS UP: To VSU Soccer Coach Melissa Heinz. In 2011, Heinz joined the VSU faculty to spearhead the then-new Blazers women’s soccer team. During her three years, VSU Soccer made two NCAA tournament appearances and played one Gulf South Conference championship. This week, Heinz announced she is leaving VSU to work with her brother’s Atlanta business.
THUMBS UP: To Valdosta State University and Georgia Military College signing an articulation agreement that will allow GMC students to
apply their associate degree credits to VSU
baccalaureate degrees. The agreement offers more educational opportunities for regional students which in turn could lead to more opportunities in the work force.
