Celebration honors Jon Hershey and David Mathis while raising money for scholarships and GHC programs

Georgia Highlands College (GHC) held a Boots & BBQ celebration in honor of Dr. Jon Hershey and Mr. David Mathis on Monday, November 8, 2021 at the Floyd Campus. The event helped raise money for scholarships and GHC programs.

The two recent retirees were honored as “champions in the community” for their dedication and combined 66 years of service to GHC and the local community.

Proceeds from the event will directly impact students, scholarships, and GHC programs such as Foundation Camp, Charger Athletics, and others endorsed by Hershey and Mathis.
