The Georgia Trustees
The highest honor the State of Georgia can confer.
In conjunction with the Governor’s Office, the Georgia Historical Society reestablished the Georgia Trustees as a way of recognizing Georgians whose accomplishments and community service reflect the highest ideals of the founding body of Trustees.
The original Georgia Trustees, a governing body chartered and appointed by His Majesty King George II of England in 1732 to establish a new colony in North America, founded Georgia upon the principle of Non Sibi, Sed Aliis, “Not for Self but for Others.” GHS and the Governor’s Office reestablished the Trustees in 2008. The Governor annually appoints new Trustees whose history-making accomplishments and service reflect the original Trustees’ ideals.
Join the Georgia Historical Society and leaders from across the state as we induct the 2024 Georgia Trustees, Ms. Carol Tomé, Chief Executive Officer of United Parcel Service (UPS), and Dr. Louis Sullivan, 17th U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services and Founding Dean of the Morehouse School of Medicine, at the Trustees Gala on Saturday, April 27, 2024, in Savannah. This elegant evening includes cocktails, dinner, and a lively conversation with the inductees—two exemplary Georgians whose history-making accomplishments and service reflect the original Trustees’ ideals.
