For those of you not familiar with Atlanta geography and landmarks....the beautiful campus of the Georgia Institute of Technology is in downtown Atlanta. Along with that, is the world headquarters for Coca-Cola. Actually, they are right across the street from each other. Literally.
My husband graduated from Georgia Tech in December 1972 and after celebrating Christmas and New Year's with family and friends.....he walked across the street. He started his new job January 2, 1973 with Coca-Cola.
He has many-a-story to tell....like when his territory, as a young buck, was Plains, GA when Jimmy Carter was President.
The little boy from Panthersville, GA with determination, perseverance, and smarts, carved out a career that not many nowadays can experience ~ almost forty years with the same company.
