To honor the immense generosity of the Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation, a luncheon was held on the University of Georgia campus Sept. 28.

Whitehead was an ardent supporter of education and gave generously to many educational institutions during her lifetime. To honor her legacy, this fall the foundation provided scholarships to more than 100 female UGA students.

Russ Hardin, Carrie Conway and Erik Johnson represented the foundation at the luncheon and are pictured with President Jere W. Morehead and scholarship recipients.

“This scholarship has given me the security to continue my education with reassurance that the path I have taken isn’t out of my reach,” said scholarship recipient Linda Chinelo Egbosiuba. “To have the honor of receiving the Lettie Pate Whitehead scholarship is something I will forever cherish.”
