Hey, everyone. I'm Conner and I'm the newest member here at FTRS. I'm currently a student at the University of Tennessee, though I grew up in Georgia and still remain a huge Tech fan. I look forward to writing and letting you guys get to know me a lot more and vice versa.

Over the weekend, 59 Yellow Jackets received their diplomas from Georgia Tech. To graduate from The Institute in itself is an outstanding accomplishment, let alone doing it while competing in Division I athletics. Many of the graduates had notable accomplishments while on The Flats, including 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Doubles champions Megan Kurey and Kendal Woodard, 1,000-point scorer and NBA hopeful Marcus Georges-Hunt, and Orange Bowl Champion starting quarterback Justin Thomas.
