Jack Davis Scholarship
Bulldawg Illustrated is donating $1 of every subscription it receives to the Jack Davis Football Scholarship, a fund that was started in 2004 in honor of Davis, the renowned Bulldog cartoonist.
"It takes $150,000 to completely endow a UGA student-athlete, and we are halfway there," said Cheri Leavy, editorial and advertising director of Bulldawg Illustrated. "Bulldawg Illustrated made a pledge to give to the scholarship fund annually but, in addition to that, we decided to give a dollar for every subscription, both print and online, to the fund. The Jack Davis Football Scholarship will cover the student-athlete’s tuition, fees, room and board and text books."
Leavy explained that the Jack Davis Football Scholarship fund became reality in 2004 when Georgia alumni and supporters held a kickoff party at the home of Tom and Ann Whelchel on St. Simons Island.
"People made pledges then, and now it’s approaching time to renew those pledges or find new people who are willing to contribute. You can make one time gifts of any amount or up to five-year pledges to this. I’ll be fund-raising, locally on St. Simons Island and also around the state because so many people are touched by Jack Davis’ contribution of his Georgia cartoons. "
"I know we’ve got people all over who want to support it," continued Leavy. "We want Jack to have a football player (for the scholarship) who he can follow next year if possible.” Leavy noted that Davis, a St. Simons Island resident, draws his cartoons in his art studio overlooking the Hampton River. "His entire studio is just covered with memorabilia covering the early years at Georgia, and it’s almost a history lesson when you visit there," she said. “When you visit his studio, you realize how long he’s contributed and participated with UGA athletics and you get a really strong sense that we need to honor this man."
In the scholarship fund-raising, Leavy said Bulldawg Illustrated is working hand-in-hand with Steven Farmer, Director of Capital Support, of the UGA Athletic Association’s Office of Development.
