Joseph Potz named to President’s List

Joseph Potz of Crestline was among a distinguished group of students who were recognized for their academic excellence in February at Flagler College in St. Augustine, Fla.

“This is a list of students who, not just academically, but in a comprehensive way, are making the most of their time at Flagler,” Dean of Academic Life Craig Woelfel said about this honor.

The President’s List is compiled in recognition of students achieving a certain standard of academic excellence and is distributed by the Office of Academic Affairs. To qualify for this award, Potz, a history major, had to earn at least a 4.0 GPA with at least 12 semester hours of graded credit.

“It’s not a small accomplishment; it means you didn’t let anything slip – I mean anything,” Woelfel said. “That’s a serious accomplishment that requires serious dedication.”

This academic success is something that Vice President of Academic Affairs Art Vanden Houten said sets President’s List recipients up to be positively influential members of Flagler’s campus.

“Education, particularly at a place like Flagler, is fundamentally a community endeavor – you should, as students with such great accomplishments, see yourselves as leaders in the community,” he said.

Flagler College, ranked #2 Best Regional College in the south by U.S. News & World Report, encourages students within its 42 majors and 47 minors to think boldly – embrace their futures with confidence, knowledge and enlightened perspectives. Located in the heart of St. Augustine’s historic district, Flagler’s around 2,400 students live in a small town with big adventures.

Flagler College was founded in 1968 within the Hotel Ponce de Leon, a National Historic Landmark opened in 1888 by Standard Oil co-founder and visionary behind the Florida East Coast Railway, Henry Flagler. St. Augustine’s history and culture, including the legacy Henry Flagler left for the campus, encourages lifelong inquiry, creativity and expanded self-awareness.
