Why I Give: Melissa Hunter

Name: Melissa Hunter

Melissa Hunter

Position: Senior Director of Finance and Administration, UGA College of Pharmacy

At UGA: Approximately three years

Beneficiary of her gift to the university: College of Pharmacy students through the Hunter Family Scholarship

Why she contributes: “Within the first year of my employment at the College of Pharmacy, my husband and I both experienced significant health crises. I sincerely don’t know how we would have gotten through these traumas without the support and compassion of my colleagues. Establishing the Hunter Family Scholarship for pharmacy students allows us to not only give back to the college that sustained us during our difficult journey but also to give forward as well.”
