Georgia Southwestern State University held a dedication ceremony Friday for a plaza named after former President Jimmy Carter. Carter attended the university in 1941 and 1942.
The former president and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, also an alumna of the university, attended.
The plaza, at the main entrance to the campus, includes a mounted signature that Carter wrote in cement when he was a freshman in 1942. For the dedication, Carter also supplied a new signature in fresh cement.
