Barbara Shaheen
AS General Studies

 Barbara Shaheen is what colleges refer to as a “non-traditional student.” By definition, a non-traditional student did not attend college immediately after high school but decided to enroll after some years had passed. One of Ms. Shaheen’s life goals was to attend college and receive a degree. So, at the spry age of 77, she decided to achieve that goal. She enrolled at the Warner Robins campus of Georgia Military College in the spring of 2007. Two years later, she will be receiving an Associate of Science degree in General Studies.

While a student at GMC-Warner Robins, Ms. Shaheen shined academically. Professors loved to have her in their classes. She made the Dean’s List and will be graduating with a GPA over 3.0. She participated in numerous student activities including the annual GMC-WR golf scramble and Relay for Life, a cancer awareness organization. She was also a member of the Student Government Association. In addition to her responsibilities as a college student, Ms. Shaheen is and has been for many years an active citizen in her community. Since moving to Warner Robins in 1964, her many accomplishments have included being a successful business woman and President of the Chamber of Commerce, and having a beautiful family consisting of a son, a daughter, and two grandchildren.

Ms. Shaheen is obviously an excellent student and citizen, but, more importantly, she is a great humanitarian. During her two years at GMCWarner Robins, she has established and awarded three scholarships to her fellow students. Realizing the financial burden some of her classmates were facing, she decided to give back to those that had given to her. Her time at this school will never be forgotten by the faculty, staff, or students.
