Past GT Honorees
2023 - Sydney Mudd
For Sydney Mudd, Georgia Tech is place for creativity and progress. A place where she’s part of a culture where people are doing great things and inspiring her to do the same. So she’s particularly humbled to be the one Yellow Jacket this year honored by the University System of Georgia (USG) Board of Regents for her achievements.
I am honored to be selected out of all the students here at Tech who are doing amazing things,” said Mudd, a third-year student in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE). “I feel like I haven’t done anything too special to deserve this recognition, but I am going to represent Georgia Tech to the best of my ability.
