Restaurant Group Makes Georgia Northwestern A Priority

Tuesday, September 8, 2015
The Burger King restaurants in Dalton, Ga. are making Georgia Northwestern Technical College a priority. For the second straight year, franchisees Middleton & Middleton, Inc. have donated $1,000 to GNTC Athletics and the GNTC Foundation.

“Sponsorships like this really help us get the things our student-athletes need,” said Georgia Northwestern Technical College’s Athletic Director David Stephenson. With the college since 2007, Mr. Stephenson prioritizes community involvement and giving back as a top responsibility of his programs.
“These restaurants taking this step by showing support of what we do really makes us feel like we are making a positive impact on more people every day. We couldn’t be more appreciative.”

Partnership signage is being manufactured to be put on display at the college’s Whitfield Murray Campus in Dalton, as well as the Rossville Athletic Complex, home of the Bobcats. “We wanted to give to (GNTC) in some way and show we are a proud partner of what they are doing here this area,” said Middleton & Middleton, Inc.’s Franchise Business Partner Chris Bock. 

Showing their partnership even further, the Burger King location on the Dalton By-Pass in Dalton, even dons a framed Georgia Northwestern Men’s Basketball jersey. This location is just a couple of miles from the main entrance of the Whitfield Murray Campus of GNTC. “We’ve even got workers from the college,” said Dorie Nesper, Middleton & Middleton, Inc.’s director of Operations.
