Our donors are all ages and come from all walks of life—just like our students.
Suman Gera regularly watches a video of her late son Richie Gera sailing. Seeing him engage in a favorite pastime brings her some comfort, as does releasing flowers into the Chattahoochee River on his birthday. This past July marked three years since Richie died in a car accident. Now, Suman is channeling her grief into a tangible honor of his memory.
Suman, along with former husband Lakhmi Gera, have established the Arvin “Richie” Gera Memorial Scholarship, open to undergraduate students at Georgia State’s Robinson College of Business: the alma mater Suman and Richie share.
“Richie was an enormous advocate for education, so it feels good to donate to Robinson, where the money will be meaningful to students. Hopefully Richie’s spirit will appreciate it.”
Guy Millner is entrenched in the insurance industry, possesses a fondness for Georgia State, and has a generous heart: the perfect recipe for the undergraduate scholarship he recently established. Available to students studying risk management and insurance or actuarial science at Georgia State’s Robinson College of Business, the Guy Millner Scholars program consists of four $20,000 installments over four years, totaling $80,000 for each recipient. Four students are selected each year. The program also includes a mentoring component and opportunities for paid summer internships at AssuranceAmerica.
In addition to an academic major within Robinson’s Department of Risk Management & Insurance, criteria include a GPA of 2.7 or higher, demonstrated financial need, and a well-rounded approach to life. The first cohort of Millner scholars encapsulates the concept of well-roundedness through their personal pursuits: Dobra-Wilson Amgabaduba is a Nigerian chef; Emily Archer, a cross-stitcher and violist; Jessica Macha, a multicultural activist; and Matthew Snyder, a drummer.
“I’m impressed that Georgia State’s tuition is so reasonable. The scholarship covers tuition, books, and a few additional needs that may arise throughout the year,” Millner said. “And the Department of Risk Management & Insurance is constantly striving to be better and better. I’m honored to continue, after all these years, as a partner with the school.”
