A tradition, a trust
Sally Quillian Yates, former U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia and a 1986 magna cum laude graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law, has been confirmed as U.S. deputy attorney general.
Nominated by President Barack Obama late last year, Yates has been serving in an acting capacity in the No. 2 post at the U.S. Department of Justice. She replaced Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole.
With the echo of "We are Grady" ringing in the air, the house lights came on an audience full of passion and pride for Grady College, as the centennial gala ended with an energized crowd of nearly 400 alumni, faculty and students at The Classic Center April 18, 2015.
"I am overwhelmed with joy and satisfaction," said Charles Davis, dean of Grady College about the four-day celebration. "What a celebration it was, and what pride and joy reflected in the faces of so many of our own at the Classic Center Saturday night. It was one for the ages."
The evening began with a welcome from UGA President Jere W. Morehead during which time he talked about Grady’s leadership in education.
