Yesterday, nearly 400 University of Georgia alumni, staff, and friends gathered in the Oceans Ballroom of the Georgia Aquarium to celebrate the 2013 40 Under 40. Attendees were welcomed to the sounds of a live steel drum band during the reception, and were then ushered into the ballroom which was decorated with eye-catching red and black decor. In the back of the room was a window into the Ocean Voyager exhibit, featuring large manta rays and massive whale sharks! The far side of the room was highlighted by a window into the playful beluga whales exhibit.
While attendees gathered around the glass to catch glimpses of these amazing creatures, the real stars of the show were still minutes from being recognized. At noon, lunch was commenced and the program began. UGA Alumni Association President Tim Keadle (BBA '78) introduced President Jere W. Morehead (JD '80), who offered the keynote remarks. President Morehead took a few moments to speak directly to the honorees themselves.
"This is my charge to you: Be of good service," Morehead said. "Be the people who make their communities better. Be the people who keep this nation's important volunteer organizations strong and vibrant. Be the people who see themselves as responsible to others, to society and to the planet. Make a difference, large and small, in every way that you can, in every place that you go."
Following President Morehead's remarks, I was proud to provide an overview of this year's class - and what an accomplished and diverse class it is. The members of the 2013 40 Under 40 graduated in the years ranging from as early as 1996 to as recently as 2011. 26 honorees graduated since 2000, and nine are Double-Dawgs, having recieved two degrees from UGA.
This year's honorees hail from nine states, the District of Columbia and the countries of Guatemala, China and Saudi Arabia. They represent a variety of industries, including art, law, education, government, finance and banking, nonprofit, food production, PR and marketing, the Armed Forces and health care.
The afternoon's festivities concluded with a class picture in front of the Oceans Voyager tank as "Glory, Glory" played over the sound system.
It was an exceptional event honoring exceptional young men and women. Nothing illustrates the value of a University of Georgia degree better than UGA's graduates, and this group of talented and dedicated young alumni have proven a UGA degree to be very valuable indeed.
Stay tuned to our website and your email inbox for information on nominating a deserving young alumni for the 2014 list. Congratulations to this year's honorees and to all of you who attended the lunch yesterday. It was truly an afternoon to remember! Go Dawgs!

UGA is hosting its 3rd Annual TEDxUGA event in Tate Grand Hall on Friday, March 27 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. What is TEDx? TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUGA, where x = independently organized TED event. At the TEDxUGA event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
