The Georgian of the Year Luncheon is an annual event where we recognize the movers and shakers from across our state. This year’s event, held Jan. 27 at the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Atlanta, honored our Georgian of the Year, University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby; our Influential Hall of Fame inductees, Atlanta Community Food Bank Founder and Executive Director Bill Bolling and former Sen. Saxby Chambliss; the 100 Most Influential Georgians; and Notable Georgians.

We couldn’t put on such a fabulous event without our sponsors, AT&T, Georgia Power, the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, Kennesaw State University and Lockheed Martin. Thank you all!

Nearly 400 people attended the luncheon – and we have photos from the event, including each of the recipients in attendance. Hope you enjoy these highlights. To see more photos, like us on Facebook,
