Three Members of the Kappa Deuteron Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity Earn University of Georgia 40 Under 40 Honors

Founded in 1785, the University of Georgia is the birthplace of public higher education in America. UGA is recognized among the leading colleges in the US.

According to UGA By the Numbers:

"Kiplinger Magazine ranks UGA 12th in its 2018 list of the “100 Best Values in Public Colleges.” U.S. News & World Report’s 2017 “Best Colleges” edition has UGA ranked 16th among public universities while Forbes lists UGA No. 17 on its list of colleges that dominate both academically and athletically."

The University of Georgia annually recognizes the 40 Under 40, "young alumni leading the pack in their industries and communities."

Let's be generous and take 25 as a UGA student's age at graduation. There are 315,000 living UGA alumni. Roughly 20% of Americans are age 25 to 40. That would suggest 63,000 UGA alumni are eligible for 40 Under 40 honors.

Whether or not our analytics hold up to scrutiny, it is safe to conclude the UGA 40 Under 40 is an elite group.

The Kappa Deuteron Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta at the University of Georgia is pleased to announce three of its graduate members earned 2018 40 Under 40 recognition.

To say that these men excel in dissimilar fields is an understatement. Yet they bear one common bond. They are Brothers in Kappa Deuteron Chapter of Phi Gamma Delta at the University of Georgia

Scott Irvine, John Ozier and Latham Saddler exemplify the excellence fostered at Kappa Deuteron.

Irvine, Ozier and Latham will unite with all 40 Under 40 honorees for a September 13 Awards Luncheon at the Georgia Aquarium.

Phi Gamma Delta's axioms include, "Not for college days alone." and "Mighty proud to be a FIJI." Truer words can not be spoken.
