Truett-McConnell College’s roots extend far back into the educational history of Georgia. The college was named to honor George W. Truett and Fernando C. McConnell, cousins who operated a private Christian academy in Hiawassee, Georgia, in the 1880s. They were men of faith and vision—renowned Baptist pastors and educators whose work and influence as joint pioneers in Christian education became well known. On July 23, 1946, ceremonies at Cleveland, Georgia, heralded the establishment of a new college named for Truett and McConnell to carry on their high standards of Christian education. Truett-McConnell College, operating in temporary quarters, first opened its doors to students in September 1947. The college moved into new facilities in its present location in September 1956.
