UGA Day Scheduled for May 9 in East Point
UGA Day on May 9 in East Point

May 7, 2012

ATHENS - The University of Georgia Athletic Association is partnering with Hamilton E. Holmes Elementary School in East Point to present "UGA Day - Learn, Play, Excel" on Wednesday, May 9 between Noon and 1:30 p.m.

Students in grades 2-5 will enjoy presentations that focus on such topics as education, leadership, anti-bullying, respect for authority and the value of participation in athletics.  Presenters from UGA are scheduled to include football coach Mark Richt, men's basketball coach Mark Fox and women's basketball coach Andy Landers.

In addition, a UGA student-athlete from each of these three sports will also participate, lending a younger perspective to the program.  They include Chris Conley, a rising sophomore wide receiver from Dallas, Ga.; Gerald Robinson, Jr., a graduate student from Nashville, Tenn., who lettered the past two seasons on the men's basketball team; and Jasmine James, a Memphis, Tenn., native and 3-year starter on the women's basketball team.

Part of an overall initiative for community outreach in the Metro Atlanta area, University of Georgia's Executive Associate Athletic Director Dr. Carla Williams hopes to promote the importance of education and the University of Georgia during the visit. 

"Through these programs, we have the opportunity to impact the community and our schools by promoting education and college attendance. We also want the children to think about the University of Georgia as not only their University, but also as their first choice for college when that time comes." she said.

Holmes Elementary School was named for Dr. Hamilton E. Holmes, one of the first two African Americans to attend UGA.
