Sharron Hannon

Sharron and Kent Hannon retired from UGA a couple of years ago after long careers with the university – Sharron as director of public relations for academic affairs, Kent as editor of the alumni magazine of the Terry College of Business. Both also have done freelance writing for local and national publications, and Kent, who began his writing career with Sports Illustrated, co-authored Damn Good Dogs, a history of the university's bulldog mascots, with Sonny Seiler. These days, Sharron keeps fit by doing yoga, tai chi and NIA classes weekly, while Kent runs (slowly) and occasionally does tai chi.
