Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal today presented Brenau University with a prestigious Governor’s Award for the Arts and Humanities for nurturing the idea that the arts are an essential part of daily lives through arts-related community activities and experiences throughout its history.
The award was one of 13 presented by Deal and his wife, Sandra, at a ceremony in the rotunda of the state capitol. Other recipients included the Atlanta Ballet, the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies at the University of Georgia and the half-century-old Freedom Singers of Albany, founded by four college students during the heyday of the civil rights movement in the South.
