My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Georgia College and State University

Location: Milledgeville GA

I have said it in previous posts I have been blessed to be on the same team with some fantastic leaders. One of those is Wendell Staton who is the Director of Athletics at Georgia College and State University. Wendell was an instrumental leader in assisting UNC Pembroke in establishing a football program back in 2007.

Photo below shows Wendell on left and myself on right at Peach Belt Conference meeting in 2016.

I wrote about Wendell back in early 2015 that post is below:


Georgia College like many schools that were created in the 19th century had a single gender purpose.


Georgia College and State University, Georgia’s public liberal arts university, in Milledgeville GA was created by an act of the legislature on November 8, 1889. Georgia Normal and Industrial College, the institution’s original name, was founded to provide a practical higher education for women that would enable them to enter business and industry or teaching.

The site of the campus in Milledgeville actual includes the Governor’s Mansion since the state capital was once located there.

If you want to learn more the university has a very informative 9 minute video on their web site.

Today Georgia College serves more than 6,600 undergraduate and graduate students in four colleges.
