In the spring of 2012, Enich and James, along with founding members, Stephanie Jones, Molly Jackson, Bridget Barker, and Michele Grainger, hosted their first annual Thankful Hearts charity event; their goal was to raise enough money to feed at least 10 Lumpkin County families, but they surpassed that goal, and they were able to feed 29 families. Each year since, they have exceeded their goal, and 2018 was their highest year so far, providing groceries to 78 local families. 

Throughout the past six years, Thankful Hearts has earned support from local businesses such as, Walmart, Dahlonega Funeral Home, and Refrigiwear, through monetary donations, food donations, and even food storage.

Take & Bake is the event held each year, in which the receiving families are able to pick up their groceries from Thankful Hearts. Enich expressed her gratitude for the people and businesses who help feed locals each Thanksgiving, “This was just an idea that started, and I truly never imagined that it would turn into this. We’ve never had to beg for money or be stressed over nominations. There’s a true need in LC & we’re just so thankful that we are able to help fill that need”

Thankful Hearts is a division of Lumpkin County Family Connections, and everyone is welcome to volunteer or donate.

UNG rolls out inaugural HawkEm 101 Student-Athlete Mentor Program

Community, University of North Georgia

DAHLONEGA, GA

According to a press release by University of North Georgia Athletics, UNG announced that the university has rolled out the HawkEm 101 Student-Athlete Mentor Program, which will give incoming freshman and transfer student-athletes the opportunity to engage and learn from experienced UNG student-athletes.

The athletic administration graduate assistant, Ashley Beaton, stated that, “Not only is HawkEm 101 in place to help promote education on responsible alcohol usage and overall student-athlete wellbeing, but to also encourage cross team collaboration and foster authentic relationships between the student-athletes.” She also points out that, “Shayna (Lawrence), Derrick (Pickvet) and Steven (Bower) have had such a positive impact on this program and they are a big reason why HawkEm 101 has been such a success in its first year. Also, the support from our administration has propelled us to take this initiative and run with it. I really do believe that this program will help enhance the student-athlete experience here at UNG and add to the championship culture we have, not only in athletics but in life.”

HawkEm 101 was inspiredly a group of UNG student-athletes and administrators after they attended the Division II APPLE Training Institute in September 2017 in Reston, Va. UNG baseball player, Steven Bower, explained that, “After having the opportunity to go to the Apple Conference with Sydney (Sprague), Derrick, and Shayna, I realized how much more information there was about drugs and alcohol than we knew about,”

The intent is that the program will not only help educate our new student-athletes about life as a UNG student-athlete, but also foster relationships across all teams and student-athletes.
