Lois Shortt

"We had many wonderful years at UGA and in Athens. It felt like it was the right thing to do to honor our years of being a part of such a special place—a place where we grew as young adults, a place where so many of our dreams were formed, a place where they began to come to fruition, a beginning to a life that would become one of success for both of us and we treasure those years that we spent there together.”

—Lois Shortt (BSEd ’46)
