UNG gets $5M gift to create scholarships
Placeholder Image
When U.S. Army Col. Lewis “Jack” Peevy died in January, he made sure his legacy would support cadets at the University of North Georgia for years to come. When Peevy willed his home and other real estate to the corps, he planned that the bequest would amount to a donation of $2.1 million for the UNG Foundation. After Peevy’s death, the property was estimated to be worth much more — $5.2 million, a sum that will be used to create an endowment for Corps of Cadet scholarships and program support.
