Richt speaks to Hall Co. businessmen

By Staff
FLOWERY BRANCH - University of Georgia Head Football Coach Mark Richt was the inaugural speaker Friday for a series of breakfast meetings at Eagle Ranch Children's Home.

Richt, along with his wife Katharyn, serves on the Board of Advisors for Eagle Ranch. He spoke to a group of businessmen, not about football, but about faith during his 7:30 a.m. address.

The breakfast series "Matters of Faith" is the brainchild of Eagle Ranch Executive Director Eddie Staub. He said his goal is to make the breakfast an annual event.
