In Memoriam

As the College 2025 committee finished its work and began preparation of this report, member Merri Brantley unexpectedly passed away after attending the annual University System of Georgia Foundation gala in Atlanta. Ms. Brantley’s decades-long career in public service made her a mainstay at the Georgia Capitol and fierce advocate for education across the state. We appreciate and honor her legacy.
