The Foundation will be honoring the memory of Dr. Jim Anderson by establishing an endowed scholarship.  Dr. Anderson spent 35 years as a history professor at the University of Georgia where he was voted by students as Outstanding Honors Professor multiple times.  He began his term on the Foundation Board in 2008 and became the Foundation’s Parliamentarian in 2009.   He was the Foundation President in 2013.  Dr. Anderson was loved and known for his gentle nature and love for education.  This endowed scholarship will be a tribute to his civic and professional life that he dedicated to providing students support to pursue their educational dreams.  

To support the scholarship you can send a check to the Foundation or visit our memorial giving page and select the Dr. Anderson Memorial.
