Supporter Stories

JRF Women of UGA (University of Georgia)


In 2010, Leslie Lee hosted the first gathering of the JRF Women of UGA. This group proves that when people work together, great things can happen. In mid-June, Leslie and her UGA steering committee of Ruth Bettandorff, Tammy Gilland, and Lori Tiller welcomed women from all over the campus to Leslie’s home to mingle and support JRF at the same time. That evening, they raised enough money to fund a scholarship!

Since then, women continue to gather each year to support other women pursuing their dreams of college graduation and better lives.
