Mayor Kelly Kautz Named One of UGA's 40 Under 40

The recipients were selected from over 400 nominees from across the world.

Snellville Mayor Kelly D. Kautz has been selected by the University of Georgia Alumni Association in its UGA 40 Under 40 program, which celebrates the university’s most outstanding young alumni.

The 40 recipients of this year’s honor were selected from more than 400 nominees from across the nation and the world. The honorees are alumni of UGA who are under 40 years of age, have had an impact in business, leadership, community, educational, and/or philanthropic endeavors, and who have aspired to uphold the principles manifested in the three Pillars of the Arch: Wisdom, Justice and Moderation.

Mayor Kautz is a double Dawg, having graduated from the University of Georgia with both her bachelor’s degree in Political Science and her Juris Doctorate Degree from the School of Law.

When asked about the honor Mayor Kautz said that she was “truly humbled."

"I am an avid supporter of the University of Georgia. Over the decades the University of Georgia has graduated some of the brightest and most talented leaders in our state," she said. "For the Alumni Association to consider me in the same class as my fellow alumni such a privilege. To me personally this is the biggest honor that I have ever received.” 

The group will be honored at an awards luncheon at the Georgia Aquarium on Sept. 20 and at the UGA Football Game on September 22nd.

This just proves the old saying you can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time and those are pretty good odds.
