Paige Pulaski of Forsyth County served as the distinguished senior orator during the University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication's recent convocation ceremony.
According to a news release from the college, Pulaski was selected for holding the highest grade-point average among the seniors.
The orator role was the latest honor for Pulaski, a 2009 South Forsyth High graduate who was selected earlier this year as a student judge for the Peabody Awards. She graduated with a double major in mass media arts and theater.
According to the college, Pulaski spent much of her time at the UGA on stage when not in the classroom, and the experience has helped prepare her for a future in the entertainment industry.
Her short film, “Falling Down” received best screenplay honors from the GradyFest Student Film Festival in 2012. She also earned the Eddie Lambeth Scholarship for Screenwriting and Acting, according to the college.
She has performed a number of roles on stage at UGA, appearing in “Shape of Things,” “Aunt Dan and Lemon” and “In the Next Room.” She leads the SHARKwiNG Sketch Comedy Troupe and is a member of UGA’s own Commedia dell’Arte Troupe.
She also leads I Commedianti Georgiani, which showcases the traditional, physical, improvised form of comedy that was founded in Italy.
This year, Pulaski served as the vice president of the oldest student-run organization on campus, the Thalian-Blackfriars, which provides undergraduate students with experience in all areas of theatrical productions.
