Why I Give

Mary Catherine and Blake Bruce with their daughter Mary Stewart.

“I believe in (Terry College’s) vision of ‘national prominence.’ I know that we are capable of being as good as or better than our aspirant colleges. We have the leadership in our faculty, staff and advisory boards but additional resources and facilities are needed to accomplish this vision. This is an exciting time for the Terry College and my wife, Mary Catherine, and I wanted to be part of it.”

— Blake Bruce (BBA ’03), first vice president–wealth         management, senior financial advisor at Merrill Lynch in Atlanta

Bruce, who was inspired by a 2001 speech at UGA by Warren Buffet, has served as chair of the Terry College Young Alumni Board. He made a significant gift to the Terry Complex Building Campaign as a way to support faculty and staff in their efforts to improve the quality of education at UGA. He and his wife, Mary Catherine Bruce (BS ’03), have a daughter, Mary Stewart, and an English bulldog named Storman Norman.
