University of Georgia Beckons Garver, Hanson with Sizable Postgraduate Packages

 Journalism majors Mary Michael Garver and Taylor Hanson are pursuing post-graduate study in two nationally recognized programs at the University of Georgia. The two May graduates received sizable scholarship assistance.

Garver, from Mobile, is working toward a master's degree in education in college student affairs in the Department of Counseling and Human Development, School of Education. Her assistantship provides $5,550 per semester tuition and an $11,000 annual stipend for two years. The total: $44,000.

Hanson, from St. Simons Island, Ga., received a full scholarship to the University of Georgia School of Law. The scholarship is valued at $15,126 and she also has a $2,000 annual scholarship from Alpha Delta Pi sorority for books and other academic necessities.

Hanson was offered full scholarships to the four law schools to which she applied: Pepperdine, Washington and Lee, Regent and Georgia. She chose Georgia because she plans to practice in her native state.

Garver and Hanson are sorority sisters in ADPi and are sharing a house on the outskirts of Athens. Both were award winners during undergraduate days. Garver received the Service Award and Hanson the Gail Hyle Award.

Garver was Step Sing director, Panhellenic vice president and twice president of the Community Service Council at Samford. Hanson was active in student ministries and student government administration.
