Sara Claudia Cain provided a very inspirational program for the Carrollton Kiwanis Club on Friday, January 20, 2023 in UWG's Hubbard Dining Room.  Oxygen deprivation to the optic nerve during what would have been a routine tonsil surgery left her totally blind in both eyes also deaf in one ear.  
 
Sara has proven herself to be a phenomenal overcomer after waking up from surgery with no eyesight.   She has written three books, completed a University degree,  speaks on a radio show, and married, and proves that nothing is impossible with God's help.

UWG Alum Renovates Computing Center in Honor of Retired Professor and Mentor
 

by Colton Campbell

Thanks to the generosity of a successful alumnus, the University of West Georgia recently cut the ribbon on a new space that will enhance the educational experience of computing students and provide them with a place to hone their skills and connect with one another.

Here's a total abuse of the poem by Emma Lazarus from the Statue of Liberty:
 
"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses" ... of high school musicans who would be interested in competing in the local Music Showcase February 5, 2023.
 
Help get the application in the hands of interested students:  Applications must be received by January 27, 2023.
 
Thanks to Paul McDaniel who has posted the link in the upper left hand side of the website:
 
Just point them to --> Carrolltonkiwanisclub.org  
   
 
Thank you.
