Lighting of the Flame Tradition Continues

Friday, August 15, 2008

The University of West Georgia tradition of the Lighting of the Flame celebrated knowledge, light and warmth with the new class of 2012. Hundreds of freshman marched with the UWG band to light the Flame of Knowledge at the entranceway of the university. Helping to light the flame were Brian McLeod, president of the National Alumni Association; Tommy Vance of Waycross, last year's freshman representative; Jason Hollingsworth of Rock Springs, freshman representative for 2008-09; Dr. Andy Walter, assistant professor of geosciences; and UWG President Beheruz N. Sethna.
