The J. Willis Mashburn Trust has donated three Ford 12-passenger vans to the intercollegiate athletics program at Dalton State College. The vans will be used to transport sports teams to practices and games, according to Athletic Director Derek Waugh.

“The gift of these vans not only lets us travel in style but will greatly reduce our travel costs because we won’t have to rent,” Mr. Waugh said. “This is a huge plus for our program, and we could not be more appreciative.” 

Dalton State will launch teams in cross country, tennis, golf, basketball, volleyball, and cheer during the 2013-2014 academic year.
