Forward-Looking Alumnus’ Generosity Will Provide Extracurricular Opportunities for Students
Humanitarian William A. (Tony) Moye ’70 is no stranger to success and, through his generosity, he hopes to provide UWG students with opportunities to excel. Working with the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, Tony has committed to not only an ongoing grant fund to support students but also a bequest in his will to establish a grant that he hopes will be endowed in excess of one million dollars.
William A. (Tony) Moye (second from left) received the prestigious Bowl of Hygeia Award on July 10.
Beginning the 2013–2014 academic year, the Tony Moye Opportunity Grant Fund will provide financial support for students to take advantage of extracurricular activities to enhance their education and position them for future success. Examples of such opportunities supported by the fund would include attendance at leadership or professional conferences, travel to present research, internships or studying abroad.
“Tony’s intended bequest creates a living legacy that will benefit generations of UWG students,” says Director of Development Diane Homesley. “We are delighted to have him join the McIntosh Society, which recognizes and honors those who have made an investment in the future of the university and its students by including UWG in their estate plans. Tony’s gift will provide opportunities and secure a bright future for ambitious students year after year.”
Tony is the founder and former chief executive officer of Moye’s Pharmacies. He received the prestigious Bowl of Hygeia Award co-sponsored by the Georgia Pharmacy Association (GPhA) and the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations on July 10. This award is the pinnacle of recognition in the pharmacy profession. It is awarded to the pharmacist who meets the highest standard of community service and who exemplifies good citizenship.
Tony was honored with the Alumni Achievement Award from UWG in 2001 and is currently serving his second term on the UWG Foundation Board of Trustees. He was a founding member of the SAO fraternity and remains active with and supportive of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity at UWG.
