Beginning in the fall of 2014, the University of North Georgia Athletic Department began honoring one student-athlete each Monday morning as the Nighthawk of the Week. The award is chosen each Sunday evening by an award selection committee made up of members of the UNG athletics administrative staff.
For the 2020-21 season, the Nighthawk of the Week title sponsor is Chick-fil-a of Dahlonega, with each week's winner being treated to a combo meal at the Dahlonega restaurant. Located at 488 Morrison Moore Parkway, Chick-fil-A loves to give back and is proud to be a community partner with UNG Athletics. Community is important to Chick-fil-a and it is their hope that they can enrich the lives of all of their Nighthawk customers.
