CARROLLTON, Ga. – An estimated crowd of more than 50 showed up as West Georgia Technical College officials held the first of a series of town hall-type meetings to gauge the community’s support of the school adding football in the near future.

The meeting was held at the Murphy Conference Center on the West Georgia Tech campus in Waco. The crowd was represented by members of the community, potential student-athletes and coaches, and WGTC employees.

“We are very pleased with the turnout at this first forum,” said WGTC President Dr. Skip Sullivan. “Our goal is to reach out and meet as many people in the community as we possibly can over the next few months as we examine the pros and cons of adding football. We are going about this in a very methodical manner, and we will continue to reach out to the general public and our student population for feedback.”

WGTC athletic coordinator Walter Dunson led the meeting with a power-point which covered a wide range of topics related to the development of a football program.

A question and answer period was held and a number of individuals addressed Dunson with questions and comments.

“Last night’s forum was a good start,” Dunson said. “We value the input of the community and the West Georgia Tech family as we continue to move forward with this process. Future forums will be held in Lagrange, Newnan and Douglasville, and one final forum will be held at the Murphy Campus in Waco again this fall.”

The earliest West Georgia Tech would compete on the gridiron is the fall of 2014. WGTC officials will announce future discussion forums soon.
