From the President of the Alumni Association

Steve Jones

As spring brings warmer temperatures and budding flowers back to our beautiful campus, the Alumni Association continues its most important work—recognizing the excellence of UGA’s 275,000 graduates.

In January, we gathered in Atlanta to celebrate the third annual Bulldog 100. Deborah Norville ’79 delivered a captivating keynote address and led us to the highlight of the evening—the countdown of the 2012 class. Congratulations to Anthony Moore ’93 of jobTopia, this year’s Fastest Growing Bulldog Business. The Association is proud to salute the entrepreneurial spirit of Anthony and his fellow honorees. Visit our website to view the class rankings and pictures from this year’s banquet. In September, we will present the second annual 40 Under 40, a selection of 40 outstanding UGA alumni under the age of 40. We are accepting nominations for this year’s class through April 11. Visit http://www.alumni.uga.edu/40u40 to nominate a deserving young graduate today!

The Alumni Association also honors distinguished alumni, faculty and friends at its annual Awards Luncheon. This year, we are delighted to recognize former state Rep. Bob Argo ’50 with the Alumni Merit Award, retired Dean of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Bill Flatt with the Faculty Service Award and the Frank W. “Sonny” Seiler (’55, ’56) family as Alumni Family of the Year.

Make plans to join us April 15 on campus in the Tate Student Center Grand Hall to recognize the contributions of these deserving recipients. More information about these and other Alumni Association programs can be found at http://www.alumni.uga.edu.

The Bulldog 100, 40 Under 40, and Alumni Awards are a few of the many programs that give us opportunities to express gratitude to those who are representing the greatness of the University and its graduates. In that same spirit, I would like to proclaim my appreciation to you, UGA alumni and friends, for your role in maintaining the preeminence of Georgia’s flagship university. Together, we are working to ensure a bright future for UGA, and thanks to you, the future looks great. Go Dawgs!
