UGA Griffin Team Wins United Way Cardboard Boat Race - Again

The “Sparkin’ Arkin” pulled our UGA team to victory once again at the 7th Annual United Way Cardboard Boat Race. This made six wins for the Griffin campus team. A UGA contingency cheered the race team on to victory, all wearing red jerseys with a number 1 on the front and “UGA Griffin” on the back. The worthy vessel was named for our own Assistant Dean Gerald Arkin.
