University of Georgia Alumni Association Michael J. Bryan Award

A veteran insurance professional, Christopher Lowell Jackson spent more than a decade as the owner of an Allstate Insurance Agency in Greensboro, Georgia. In honor of his achievements in the field, Christopher Lowell Jackson was recognized as a member of the Bulldog 100, an honor given out by the University of Georgia Alumni Association

An organization representing the interests of the more than 300,000 living alumni of the University of Georgia, the University of Georgia Alumni Association offers career development, networking, and other programs to members. Each year, the Alumni Association also recognizes the Bulldog 100, a list honoring the fastest-growing companies owned by Georgia alumni. Additionally, the association presents the Michael J. Bryan Award.

Michael J. Bryan founded and owned wine-related businesses in Atlanta, and he stood out for appearing on the Bulldog 100 each year since the program’s inception. After Mr. Bryan passed away from cancer in 2017, the Alumni Association honored his memory by creating an award and a scholarship fund in his honor. 

Each year, the Alumni Association will present the award to a Bulldog 100 member who best exemplifies the traits of Mr. Bryan. Additionally, once the fund reaches a total of $50,000, the Alumni Association will begin bestowing an annual scholarship to an up-and-coming business leader enrolled at the University of Georgia.
