Bulldog 100 Class of 2019

The Michael J. Bryan Award and Scholarship

Michael Bryan (BBA ’89), owner of Vino Venue/Atlanta Wine School and the only business to make the Bulldog 100 list eight consecutive years, lost his battle with cancer in 2017. The UGA Alumni Association collaborated with his family to create an award and scholarship to honor his memory.

The Michael J. Bryan Award is given to a returning Bulldog 100 honoree who demonstrates entrepreneurial spirit and whose business has sustained growth. The 2019 Michael J. Bryan Award winner was Ron Holt (BSA ’97), CEO and founder of Two Maids & A Mop.

In addition, donations to the Michael J. Bryan Bulldog 100 Scholarship Fund will support need-based scholarships for students through the Georgia Commitment Scholarship Program.
