On Dec. 18, 2003, Reinhardt College hosted a
reception for Mr. and Mrs. William "Billy" G. Hasty Jr. of Canton, Ga.,
to thank them for providing the generous renovation funds for the
President's Office, reception area and Wesley Conference Room in the
Burgess Administration Building on the College's main campus in Waleska,
"We wanted to host the event now,
during the holiday season, because the festive decorations so
beautifully accent the renovated areas," Vice President for External
Affairs JoEllen Wilson said. She also commended the Hasty family for their longstanding dedication to the institution.
"Billy and Linda are part of four generations of Hastys who have attended Reinhardt," she said. ï"And I hope these little ones, Erin and Cole, will be headed here in a few years," referring to the Hastys' grandchildren.
Mr. Hasty said they had wanted to do something to help the College and were glad to be of assistance with this specific need.
The standing-room-only gathering of family, friends,
local trustees and College staff and administrators toured the
beautifully decorated areas and enjoyed refreshments.
