MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. — A 2010 graduate of South Forsyth High School has logged about 750 hours in the last two years volunteering throughout the Georgia College and State University campus and his community.

Barrett Roell, 21, a longtime Keep Forsyth County Beautiful volunteer, was recognized in October with the National Daily Point of Light Award.

Roell was recognized for the award, which honors individuals and groups creating meaningful change in communities, because as president of the blood drives at Georgia College, he overhauled and expanded the program.

Roell, a senior management marketing major, made the blood drive process efficient, increased the amount of blood collected and spread campus awareness. In addition to blood drives, he volunteers with several community organizations.

"I just enjoy giving back," Roell told the Milledgeville-based Union Recorder newspaper. "It makes me feel awesome to know that I'm making a difference in the lives of other people."
