Creative Explorers Camp, Athens YMCA, Habitat for Humanity, LevelUP receive Sahm Award funds

UGA Today

Four local projects between University of Georgia and Athens-Clarke County organizations will be awarded the Bobbi Meeler Sahm Service and Outreach Award. A total award of $39,000 will be divided among the recipients.

This year’s recipients of the Sahm Award include the 2024 Creative Explorers Camp, Athens YMCA, Athens Area Habitat for Humanity and LevelUP, an after-school sports and academic program.

The Sahm Award was established in 2021 by Sahm, a UGA Alumna, and her family to help the university make an impact in Athens-Clarke County. Recipients of the award were selected by a committee of representatives from UGA and the local community. The fund is awarded to local organizations annually.

President Jere W. Morehead contributed an additional $100,000 to the endowment using funds provided to him by the UGA Athletic Association.

“The core mission of the University of Georgia is public service. The generosity of Bobbi Sahm and support of President Morehead allow us to utilize more of UGA’s resources in Athens-Clarke County and broaden the impactful community partnership work we’re doing,” said Jennifer Frum, vice president for public service and outreach.
