Autographed Football Items Drawing

This year, the UGA Athletic Association has provided the SVRC with four items signed by Head Coach Kirby Smart. The items (pictured above) include two autographed footballs and two pictures of Sanford Stadium for us to donate to our military-affiliated students.

We will distribute these items through a drawing at the Veterans Week Reception on November 9, 4:30-5:20 p.m. in Tate Grand Hall. You must be present to win.

As a reminder, if you submitted your photo for the Jumbotron, you are entered for the drawing. You can also be entered for the drawing by attending the Jimmy Blackmon Presentation/Book Event on Thursday, October 21 (see more information below).

Note: ALL currently enrolled (full-time and part-time) student veterans, reservists, National Guard, and active duty students may participate.

Jimmy Blackmon Presentation

We are honored to welcome business consultant, author and retired Army Colonel Jimmy Blackmon to UGA on Thursday, October 21, where he will spend a little time talking about battle-proven leadership and those special veterans responsible for shaping his thinking over the years. Jimmy and SVRC Director Jon Segars first met in college in the late 1980s and now have shared many of the same type experiences; sometimes together and often times worlds apart.

Jon shares, “In addition to being a great leader, Jimmy has always been a great storyteller, and you will not be disappointed in the time we will have together.”

Jimmy will have for us signed copies of several of his books, and you can choose a book at no cost just for attending. View his books here.

Please join us in Room 102 of the Miller Learning Center on October 21 at
4:30 p.m. RSVP today.
