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: Agnes Scott College

Location: Decatur GA

Tomorrow I am headed off to Atlanta to catch up with some great friends Brad Allen and Tom Hill who happen to be NFL game officials. They will be in town to officiate the August 31st exhibition game between Jacksonville Jaguars at Atlanta Falcons.

Atlanta has lots of colleges located inside its city limits but one of the most picturesque colleges does not have a football team. Agnes Scott College is a women’s liberal arts college. The college’s beauty has been the backdrop for a number of movies including Driving Miss Daisy, Scream 2 and The Blind Side.

The campus website has some great photos of how the campus has evolved over the decades.

The college was named in honor of Agnes Irvine Scott, a Scots-Irish immigrant who upheld a strong sense of integrity and intellectual curiosity. Her son Col. George Washington Scott was the college’s primary benefactor, and the Rev. Frank Henry Gaines, minister of Decatur Presbyterian Church, was the founding president.

Today the college boast an enrollment of just under 1,000 female students. The current president Elizabeth Kiss is a Davidson College graduate and she was the first female Rhodes Scholar from Davidson.

Agnes Scott has lots of notable alumni including Douglasville GA native Jennifer Nettles from the duo Sugarland.
