MOULTRIE, Ga. — Durwood Dominy has been the voice of Packer football for over 30 years and during his time he has seen victory and defeat. One thing that has always been constant is hearing his voice through the sound system every Friday night during football season.
Fresh off his Colquitt County Sports Hall of Fame induction, Dominy now has another accolade to add to his long list.
On Friday night, the broadcast booth at Mack Tharpe Stadium was named in Dominy’s honor to celebrate his dedication and outstanding work in the community.
School Superintendent Doug Howell said the Durwood Dominy Broadcast Booth is recognition long overdue.
“Durwood is an outstanding member of the community including the work he does outside of Packer football,” said Howell. “I support the broadcast booth being named after him because he is a man of integrity, a great guy and a great citizen.”
Among other things, Dominy keeps busy as a member of the Georgia Hospital Association’s Board of Trustees, where he has served for over ten years, and he is the chairman of deacons at First Baptist Church.
Pastor Wayne Woods had nothing but good to say about Dominy as he congratulated him on this moment.
“He is faithful in both service and attendance,” said Woods. “He has shown leadership by being chairman of the deacons multiple times and teaching adult Sunday school, people gravitate towards him. He is an excellent example of a Christian that talks the talk and walks the walk.”
After the ceremony, the “Voice of the Packers” returned to the broadcast booth that now bears his name to announce the Packers’ playoff game against the McEachern Indians. The Pack won 49-29.
