Twenty years of hope


Former Gov. Zell Miller (center), who launched the HOPE scholarship for Georgia college students in 1993, returned to campus in late June to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the state lottery, which funds the merit-based award and the state’s Pre-K programs. In this photo Miller is shaking hands with Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle. To the right of Miller is Gov. Nathan Deal. The ceremony and reception were held in the Zell B. Miller Learning Center, named for the former governor.
