Giving back to UGA, Vy’s impact is personal and tangible. “I’m seeing what my money does; it is hands-on giving,” Vy said. “My few dollars can help renovate a building or provide scholarship funds for students. There’s a direct benefit.”
Vy often shares with others about his experience at UGA and his passion for giving back to the university. “I hope that telling people will influence them to give back to the University of Georgia.” Additionally, Vy avidly serves his community wherever and whenever he can. Most recently, he traveled to Kikiyu, Kenya, to provide dental care services to children with limited access to dental care; their team treated over 1,000 kids. He believes that sharing his “why” with others will inspire them to see how they can make a difference too.
“I know I will be a lifelong supporter of UGA,” Vy said. He hopes his contributions will impact students’ lives for years to come.
