Georgia College Alumnus Earns International Award

 

 Alex Gregory, who holds two master’s degrees from Georgia College and has served for more than 20 years as a member of the Foundation Board of Trustees, has been awarded the Mike Mansfield Award, presented by The Japan-America Society of Georgia.
