VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –A south Georgia College is building a new signature symbol on campus.

On Friday, the Valdosta Technical College Board of Trustees broke ground on a new fountain.

The sale of bricks to honor or memorialize friends and family will pay for construction.

The trustees wanted to create a centerpiece to represent the college.

"The college needed distinct architecture that students could congregate around," said Randy Saul, Valdosta Technical College Trustees Chair. "It creates a focal point for memorializing graduation and things of that sort."

Construction on the fountain starts January and will take a couple months to complete.
