The Father's Day Council of Atlanta has selected Gary S. May as one of
three recipients of the 2011 Father of the Year Award. Selected for
being an outstanding businessman, a leader in the community, and a great
father, Dr. May and his co-recipients will be honored at the
Intercontinental Buckhead on June 16. The dinner is a benefit for the
American Diabetes Association and its mission to prevent and cure
diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
Currently, Dr. May is the Steve W. Chaddick School Chair for the School of ECE. Earlier this month, he was appointed as the next dean of the College of Engineering, to be effective July 1.
Since 1999, the American Diabetes Association has partnered with the
National Father's Day Council to host the Father of the Year Awards
dinner. Each year, these two organizations recognize numerous men from
across the nation for the outstanding strength, commitment, and love
that they exhibit as fathers. These men have not only attained success
in their chosen field or endeavor, but also teach their children well
and serve as good citizens and members of the community.
