Why I Give


“Our decision to give back to UGA was an easy one. The UGA School of Law provided the springboard to Robert’s legal career, which began at King and Spalding in Atlanta. Our oldest son, Robert IV, graduated in December with his history degree and starts his career in insurance next month at Marsh. Our son, Taylor, is working on his business degree.”

English Ball, who with her husband Robert served as chairs of the UGA Parents and Families Leadership Council for the 2010-11 academic year. English Ball was one of two parents to serve on the UGA Emergency Preparedness and Communications Committee, which reviewed the university’s emergency response protocols and made recommendations to improve the system.

Robert Owen Ball III (JD ’86) and his wife English Ball created the Robert Ball Law School Scholarship with a $100,000 gift to the university. They also support the UGA Parents and Families Council with an annual gift of $2,500.
