Philip Sarris

64 years later, Philip Sarris gets the diploma he earned

Professor Aris Georgakakos with Philip Sarris, BSCE 1952.

When Philip Sarris finished his civil engineering degree at Georgia Tech, he already had a job waiting. Actually, in many ways, he had two jobs waiting. One was with Southern Railway, where Sarris had worked as a co-op student throughout his time at Tech. The other was with the United States Army, which drafted him and sent him off to Korea. All of that meant Sarris didn’t cross the stage and officially collect his diploma in 1952.
