I believe that this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.
I believe in education, which gives me the knowledge to work wisely and trains my mind and my hands to work skillfully.
I believe in honesty and truthfulness, without which I cannot win the respect and confidence of my fellow men.
I believe in a sound mind, in a sound body and a spirit that is not afraid, and in clean sports that develop these qualities.
I believe in obedience to law because it protects the rights of all.
I believe in the human touch, which cultivates sympathy with my fellow men and mutual helpfulness and brings happiness for all.
I believe in my Country, because it is a land of freedom and because it is my own home, and that I can best serve that country by "doing justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly with my God."
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
-George Petrie (1943)
On behalf of the West Georgia Auburn Club, I would like to welcome you and say thanks. Thank you to our community for your generous support financially and the time you provide volunteering at club events.
The WGAC is proud to offer the Charles D. Hudson Memorial Scholarship to one student in the Troup, Harris, and Meriwether county area. The scholarship was established in 2007, and has recently transitioned from a one year to four year scholarship.
As we begin 2021, our leadership team will participate in the 2021 Club Leadership Conference (February 5th and 6th) virtually. We’ll take advantage of this opportunity to fellowship, share, and learn from other alumni clubs across the country.
Moving forward in 2021, WGAC hopes to offer events in our community like the Annual Scholarship Dinner and The Chattahoochee Split. As we begin our preparation for these events and others throughout our community, we’ll provide communication through email and social media. We look forward to safely gathering and sharing our love for Auburn.
