Cumming mayor to receive UNG's Presidential Leadership Award


March 05, 2014
CUMMING, Ga. – Cumming Mayor H. Ford Gravitt, who has served in that role since 1970, will be honored with the University of North Georgia's Presidential Leadership Award during UNG's 2014 Scholarship Ball on March 28.

Gravitt is being honored for his support of the university and his work to bring higher education to the Forsyth County community.

"Mayor Gravitt sees that when government, community, industry and UNG work in partnership, we can dramatically increase the educational attainment of students and help our region prosper," said Bonita Jacobs, UNG president. "He was instrumental in the development of our Cumming campus, and his vision and determination to establish a center of higher education will have lasting benefits for the community."

For almost 20 years, Gravitt led Cumming and Forsyth County officials and community members in efforts to bring higher education to the area.

His work resulted in the Cumming campus of UNG opening in August 2012 with more than 500 students enrolled.

Proceeds from the annual UNG Scholarship Ball funds scholarships for UNG students, another area in which Gravitt has supported the university.

Tickets for the 2014 Scholarship Ball are $100 per person and available online via ungalumni.org/scholarshipball.

The ball will be held at the Forsyth Conference Center at Lanier Technical College, 3410 Ronald Reagan Boulevard in Cumming.
