Athens Banner-Herald features Grady Centennial in special insert

Next to the Red & Black, there are few newspapers that have had as many Grady College students and alumni write or take pictures for it over the years as the Athens Banner-Herald.  On April 12, 2015, the Banner-Herald saluted the college with a special insert heralding its past and looking forward to the future.

The insert included interviews with several notable alumni, a retrospective overview of the history of the college in a column written by Dean Emeritus E. Culpepper “Cully” Clark, an update on future initiatives by Grady College Dean Charles Davis, an overview of the Peabody Awards and a timeline of events over the past 100 years.  The features were interspersed with several current and historical pictures.

Below are links to the articles in the insert that can be found online*:
