“You can step foot on any campus of the University System of Georgia and feel the immediate and lasting impact of Governor Zell Miller’s legacy. We see it every day in the thousands of students enrolled in our world-class institutions with help from the HOPE Scholarship. The child of two teachers, Governor Miller knew education could transform lives for the better. HOPE, since its creation in 1993, has provided more than $10 billion in financial aid to more than 1.8 million students. We stand proud to uphold that legacy, one that created a culture of higher expectations and helped move the University System of Georgia to among the very best in the nation.” Chancellor Steve Wrigley
