Visit across Georgia Begins July 12
Georgia Institute of Technology President G. P. “Bud” Peterson kicked off his annual summer tour of the state today in Clayton, Georgia.
Peterson and his wife, Val, are traveling the state from north to south July 12 – 16. Stops will include Young Harris, Athens, Watkinsville, Greensboro, Perry, Warner Robins, Fort Valley, Lyons, Vidalia and Albany.
This is the second annual state tour for the Petersons. As new residents of Georgia, Peterson initiated the visits last year to provide an opportunity to meet face-to-face with alumni, students, state leaders and other friends to share updates on Georgia Tech and to listen to questions and concerns. Stops for the 2009 tour included Columbus, Macon, Savannah, Brunswick and Augusta.
