Open arms extended at Shorter for Georgia Baptist Children's Home
The Shorter Hawks football team can expect to hear extra cheers from the stands this Saturday as children from the Georgia Baptist Children's Home are welcomed as special guests during the game on Oct. 11.
According to Dr. John Head, vice president of enrollment management at Shorter, more than 150 children and staff members from the home are expected to turn out for the third-annual event.
Head said the children would be treated to a cookout prior to the game.
Special T-shirts have also been designed to give the children a lasting memento from the event.
"We are certainly looking forward to Saturday," said Kenny Thompson, vice president of the children's home. "We really appreciate Shorter putting this on for us. In fact, one little boy has been talking about this all year," Thompson said.
Georgia Baptist Children's Homes and Family Ministries, Inc. is a caring ministry of services designed to promote the spiritual, physical, and emotional well-being of children, youth and families.
"We just have a really relaxing and fun time," said Chris Hobbs, public relations official at the home. "Before our kids come to us, many of them have probably not been on a college campus. This gives them a chance to visit a college and take in a college football game. Shorter students and staff have always been so good to our kids." The Shorter Hawks are set to play the Lambuth Eagles Satruday at 1:30 p.m. at Barron Stadium.
