The University of Georgia Griffin Campus was named the Good Corporate Citizen of the Year at the 105th Annual Dinner of the Griffin-Spalding Chamber of Commerce held on January 25, 2018. The award, sponsored by BB&T, recognizes an organization that has made a commitment to improving the quality of life for all in Griffin-Spalding County. Cindi Shaddix, of BB&T, presented the award and praised the local university for its support of the community over the years.
“This organization has supported the Griffin-Spalding Chamber of Commerce and the Griffin Spalding County United Way for many years. They are consistently recognized by United Way as a Pacesetter organization for their significant economic contribution to our community. As we all know, money raised in our country by United Way is reinvested in our county which provide services to our citizens of greatest need,” said Shaddix.
She also noted employees of UGA Griffin can always be counted on to serve in volunteer positions on various community boards and organizations within our community.
