Athens, Ga. – Five University of Georgia freshmen have been awarded the George W. Woodruff Honors Scholarships for the 2007-2008 academic year.
The scholarship is named after George W. Woodruff, a leading business executive and philanthropist who served on the board of directors for the Coca-Cola Company for 49 years. He was a life-long supporter of education and this scholarship recognizes his commitment to UGA.
The award provides $2,000 per year to incoming Honors students with stellar high school academic records.
