Groundbreaking! We can all agree that change and growth are important for the development of our community. Lamar and Ann Wright must have agreed because they were gracious enough to donate $5 million to Dalton State College. This donation was matched by the State of Georgia for the new Wright School of Business. This new addition will renovate and expand the Gignilliat Memorial Hall that was originally completed in the 1970’s. The extension will be 20,000 square feet and will include new classrooms, a finance lab, study spaces and a space for public events. This expansion will give current and upcoming students the tools and facilities they need to grow and succeed! This expansion is scheduled to be completed by January of 2019.
