The Central Ga Tech Cougars Get Involved, Led By New Coach Reco Dawson

MACON, GA — The CGTC Cougars took to the Streets and gave back in a big way for two deserving local organizations this past weekend. Street to Success, which helps Provide a safe place where young men from the Houston Ave. south area receive the love & encouragement, to find a hiding place in Christ, through physical & spiritual life practices. And The Iron Men’s Health Fair, which raises awareness about hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes, and prostate cancer in the Middle GA Community.

The CGTC Cougars Basketball team volunteered their time and efforts by being involved in mentoring, prostate screening, a 5K Walk/Run, 3-on-3 basketball, blood pressure checks, and diabetes screening. All proceeds went to benefit the American Cancer Society and Street to Success.

“Our young men, here at CGTC, will provide a shining example to others in the community”, said Cougars New Head Basketball coach Reco Dawson. “We want those in the Middle GA community to know that we want to be involved in this (our) community, and we will lead the charge in all aspects.”

CGTC Athletic Director, Rorie Bradley said, “Coach Dawson is a great example for our young men at CGTC. He is from Macon and displays great enthusiasm for this community that has given so much to him.”
