Clayton State’s National Champions Get Their Own Road Signs
Morrow, Ga. July 2, 2012 – While an NCAA National Championship trophy is a sure sign of reaching the top in college sports, there are other signs as well.
Take the two green road signs that were recently posted in Morrow, Ga., commemorating the 35-1, 2010/11Clayton State University women’s basketball team that won the NCAA Division II national championship on Mar. 25, 2011, with a dominating 69-50 win over Michigan Tech in St. Joseph’s, Mo.
Thanks to the efforts of now-retired Clayton State Vice President for External Relations “Steve” Stephens, the Georgia DOT has located the signs on Georgia route 54 (Jonesboro Road), across from the Georgia Archives and just north of the main entrance to the University (Clayton State Boulevard), and on the left side of the exit 233 exit ramp from southbound I-75.
A unit of the University System of Georgia, Clayton State University is an outstanding comprehensive metropolitan university located 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.
