The Marietta Daily Journal – Class is in Session Governors Sanders Barnes on rise of KSU

As the 25,000-student Kennesaw State University prepares to mark its 50th anniversary this October, some of the people who made it possible, among them former Gov. Carl Sanders, recently gathered to celebrate the golden anniversary.

Among those lunching in the dining room of Sanders’ law firm, Troutman Sanders, located in Atlanta’s Bank of America Plaza, were former Cobb Board of Education member John Strother of Marietta, who turns 100 in August, former Marietta City Schools Superintendent Lloyd Cox, age 93, of Marietta, banker Joe Daniell and former Gov. Roy Barnes.

Sanders, who lives in Buckhead and turns 88 this month, was governor from 1963 to 1967.

Part of his platform was to build a junior college in every congressional district in Georgia.

“And we damn near did that too,” Sanders said.
