Spring 2010: Of Note
Donors’ Gifts Honored
This spring, longtime Emory donors Pete and Ada Lee Correll received the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ (AFP) top philanthropy honor, the Paschal Murray Award for Outstanding Philanthropist. The couple was nominated by Emory and the AFP Greater Atlanta Chapter.
On their long list of charitable efforts, Emory has been a significant recipient. The couple recently donated to the Emory School of Medicine to fund term- limit chairs and scholarships. The Corrells also served as chairs of the school’s 150th anniversary celebration, and Ada Lee currently chairs the $500 million School of Medicine campaign, part of the larger $1.6 billion Emory campaign.
“Pete and Ada Lee have invested not just their time and resources in Emory’s medical school but also their hearts,” says Thomas J. Lawley, dean of the School of Medicine. “Their gifts are helping our faculty and students in very concrete ways every single day, and their vision and leadership have been fundamentally important in helping shape our future.”
