1906 Society Event

The Georgia Southern University Foundation hosted the annual 1906 Society Event outside under the stars at the Bruce & Kathryn Grube Recreation Activity Center Nov. 3, 2017, honoring the University’s annual supporters. Georgia Southern President Jaimie Hebert, Ph.D., welcomed guests to the event which included Caribbean cuisine and entertainment by the Swingin’ Medallions.

Membership into the 1906 Annual Giving Society is based on annual gifts of $1,200 or more made during the fiscal accounting period July 1 – June 30. These gifts support varying needs on campus ranging from student scholarships to cultural activities to centers and support services.
