Inspiration for The Rollins Pavilion

John and Michele Rollins

John Rollins

John W. Rollins, Sr. (1916-2000)
Inspiration and support for the Pavilion come from the generosity of John W. Rollins, Sr. Born on a North Georgia farm, Mr. Rollins owned and operated 12 businesses by the time he was 35. Mr. Rollin’s example of self-reliance and integrity earned him the Horatio Alger award. And, his desire to help others extended to his community in support of scholarships for the underprivileged. His commitment to see this facility become a reality is a testament to Mr. Rollin’s dedication, generosity and support for others.
