UGA’s Amazing Students: Colby Ruiz
The following guest post is from Cole Calfee '17, a student at the University of Georgia. Cole is a member of the Student Government Association and the Order of Omega. He co-founded Bowtie Brand, Inc., which was sold in 2014 after three successful years of operation.
My name's Cole, I'm a third-year business student at UGA, and I'm organizing a charity golf tournament on Friday, October 2 in Athens.
If you're anything like me, you've had October 3 marked on your calendar for quite some time. No loss is easy, but watching the clock tick to zero in the Georgia Dome in 2012 hurt more than most. Alas, the Bulldogs face off against the Alabama Crimson Tide in what is the most hyped SEC crossover game of the year on the first Saturday of October.
My thought for the golf tournament arose this past Easter, when I was in the room when my grandfather, who has Alzheimer's disease, forgot my mom's name. It tore me apart. A day later, I had the idea for this event and started working from there. Knowing how many folks would be coming into town for the big game, I thought it sounded like something that had the potential to raise a lot of money and ultimately do a lot of good in fighting a disease that affects so many of us.
The tournament is a 2-man scramble, and every penny we raise will go directly to The Alzheimer's Association. I'd love for you and a partner to join us as we bring together alumni and students from both the University of Alabama and the University of Georgia for a morning of golf before the game the next day.
"Candidly, there's nothing more important to the University of Georgia than its linkage with the agricultural industry. This tour gives the university a chance to showcase what the university does for the agricultural industry and how important that industry is, not only to the state today but to the future of the state." - UGA President Jere W. Morehead (JD '80)
Agriculture has a more than $72 billion impact on Georgia's economy. From the assistance offered through UGA Cooperative Extension to research advances, farmers and food industry leaders rely on UGA's expertise.
Last week, UGA President Jere W. Morehead saw the close partnership between the agriculture industry and the university as he toured several north Georgia farms, and food processing and biosecurity facilities with Commissioner of Agriculture Gary Black, Sen. John Wilkinson, chairman of Georgia state Senate's Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee; Rep. Terry England, chairman of Georgia state House's Appropriations Committee; and J. Scott Angle, dean and director of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
With agritourism, poultry and food manufacturing playing key roles in northeast Georgia's agricultural economy, the tour covered six points of interest. At each stop, farm and plant managers shared ways in which UGA has contributed to their success and ways the university can help in the future.
This year's tour included visits to:
- Hillside Orchard Farms - Tiger, Georgia
- Tiger Mountain Vineyard - Tiger, Georgia
- Jaemor Farms - Alto, Georgia
- Georgia Poultry Laboratory Network Headquarters - Gainesville, Georgia
- King's Hawaiian Bakery - Flowery Branch, Georgia
- Sonstegard Foods - Gainesville, Georgia
The UGA Alumni Association would like to thank the many generous businesses and individuals that are sponsoring the 2015 40 Under 40 program.
In 2011, the UGA Alumni Association launched the 40 Under 40 program to recognize exceptional young alumni who are achieving great success in their professional and personal endeavors. This campus-wide collaboration is supported by the Division of Development and Alumni Relations, Division of Student Affairs and all academic departments. In a few days, the campus community will gather for the 2015 40 Under 40 Awards Luncheon to celebrate these individuals' leadership in business, research, the arts, philanthropy and education.
Thanks to these sponsors, UGA is able to showcase its great young alumni year after year. Partnerships with sponsors are vital to the success of this program and without their generous help, the program would not be possible.
