On March 6, 2017, Pete Correll was honored by the Georgia House of Representatives for his work to save Grady Hospital in Atlanta as well as serving as Chairman of the Grady board. Correll and his wife, Ada Lee, are the donors behind the Correll Scholars Program, which provides twenty renewable scholarships of $5,000 annually to students at East Georgia State College. They were also responsible for the Sudie A. Fulford Community Learning Center on EGSC’s Swainsboro campus, named after Ada Lee’s mother.
“Thank you very much for this honor. It is not necessary, but I appreciate it,” said Correll. “Thank you for the recognition, thank you for what you do for our state, and it is truly an honor.”
