The University of Georgia College of Engineering celebrated the official dedication of a conference room within the Driftmier Engineering Center, courtesy of Hussey Gay Bell, during a formal naming ceremony held last month.
Hussey Gay Bell is a full-service, multi-disciplinary family of five specialized engineering and architecture companies. The firm offers exceptional service and expertise in a comprehensive range of disciplines including civil, water/wastewater, transportation, environmental and structural.
The celebration commenced with an introductory address by the college’s senior director of development, Jan Blaine. It was followed by remarks from the College of Engineering dean, Donald Leo, and Hussey Gay Bell CEO, Holmes Bell. In attendance were Holmes and Lisa Bell and their daughter Sides, guests of Hussey Gay Bell, college leadership, college student ambassadors, and civil and environmental engineering students.
“We extend our heartfelt appreciation to our dear friends, Holmes and Lisa, and the entire team at Hussey Gay Bell for their remarkable support of UGA Engineering,” expressed Jan Blaine.
Through this generous contribution, the Bell family continues their longstanding tradition of philanthropy, seeking to fortify and nurture Communities of Learning, Discovery, and Innovation that pave the way for the education of the next generation of engineers.
“I would like to offer my sincere thanks to Hussey Gay Bell for their steadfast support of the college,” said Donald Leo. “Their generosity is making a positive and lasting impact on the lives of our students for generations to come.”
