The convention center ballroom at Lanier Technical College's new campus is now the Kathryn L. "Kit" Dunlap Ballroom.
The naming was announced Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018, at the annual Eggs & Issues breakfast put on by the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce and featuring the local legislative delegation.
While most of the accolades during the event were directed toward outgoing Gov. Nathan Deal, he directed some toward Dunlap as he announced the president and CEO of the chamber would be the namesake of the ballroom.
"“I’m not very much at a loss for words," Dunlap told the crowd gathered at the breakfast, "but thank you so much for that honor, and I appreciate it."
Dr. Ray Perren, president of Lanier Tech, made a few remarks as the letters above the ballroom were unveiled following the breakfast.
