Trion Names Athletic Complex After The Late J. W. Greenwood
Thursday, 08 October 2015 11:02

Recently officials unveiled a few new things at Trion City Schools.

The athletic complex was renamed. A bronze bust of the late Trion native J.W. Greenwood was unveiled and a foundation in his name announced it was giving away two full four-year scholarships.
"Coach Greenwood was my elementary school PE teacher. He was also my high school baseball coach for four years including the 1983 year when we won the state championship. Coach Greenwood was one of the most influential role models for me growing up and what a special day it is for me to dedicate the Trion City Schools Athletic Complex in his memory," Trion School Superintendent Phil Williams said.
Greenwood died in June 2012 at the age of 84. He was an integral part of Trion's athletic programs. 
Local Gas Prices Expected To Align With Other Georgia Cities

Local gas prices should become cheaper, according to Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters.
Local gas stations can now purchase a lower priced blend of gasoline. Chattooga prices will start to align with other businesses in neighboring Georgia communities.
"It may take a month or so for all of this to work out," said Jim Bagley, owners of Bagley Distributors Inc., 11161 Hwy. 27, in Summerville.
Once gas stations use up their current stock, the next shipment of gasoline will come from wholesale gas terminals in Chattanooga and Rome. Until now, local gas companies were forced by federal rules to use a specialty blend available near Atlanta.
