Distinguished Georgia Tech Alumni George P. Burdell to be Honored by Georgia State Senate

George P. Burdell is quite possibly the most famous and most accomplished graduate in the long hallowed history of Georgia Tech.

Since enrolling in the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1927, Mr. Burdell enrolled in every class offered by Georgia Tech, en route to a record-setting eight degrees. George Burdell also flew combat missions in World War II; and has demonstrated a strong loyalty to country by serving in every military action that put American troops in harm's way, far away.

In 2001, George P. Burdell was a leading vote-getter in the balloting for Time magazine's Man of the Year award.

And now, the Georgia State Senate is honoring George P. Burdell for his "exceptional accomplishments and achievements in the Georgia Institute of Technology community, nationwide, and around the world."

Senate Resolution 401, sponsored by Senator Charlie Bethel (R - Dalton) is a fitting tribute for such a classy person like Mr. Burdell.

The resolution honoring Burdell was authored by a University of Georgia graduate, showing that Clean, Old Fashioned Hate can be put aside when it comes to commending a man all Georgians can be proud of.
