Athens,GA–Sports broadcasters Verne Lundquist and Tony Barnhart along with former UGA head coach and athletic director Vince Dooley will speak at the Richard Russell Special Collections Auditorium today at 4 p.m. The Former Associate Vice President for Facilities Planning at UGA Daniel Sniff will also serve as a speaker for the UGA Heritage of Sport.
This event has been in the works for months and it’s UGA’s first university-wide celebration of the International Day for Monuments and Sites.
“The goal is to raise attention to the idea that sports is an important part of the heritage of the university,” said one of the organizers of the event, James Reap, “Sports has had a lot to do with shaping physically the campus and creating that kind of spirit among students, athletes and the community as a whole.”
