President’s Summer Tour to Head South
A recap of Wednesday, day 3, of the Georgia Tour, which included airplanes and honey.
President G.P. “Bud” Peterson and Val Peterson, first lady, are headed south this month to visit Georgia Tech alumni, Regents, business leaders, lawmakers, and other friends of the Institute.
This year’s tour — Peterson’s ninth as Tech president — takes place June 19-21 and will cover South Georgia with stops in Jekyll Island, Brunswick, Waycross, Douglas, Tifton, Valdosta, Thomasville, Camilla, Albany, Americus, and Columbus.
Each year, the Petersons dedicate time during the summer to visit a different area of the state to meet with stakeholders. Through the past eight tours, the Petersons have traversed the entire state, covering more than 6,000 cumulative miles.
This year’s tour will cover nearly 1,000 miles — the most ever in a single tour — and hit 44 counties.
