South Georgia State College and the family of Dayne Purvis are excited to announce the establishment of the Dayne Purvis Leadership Award Scholarship

A scholarship fund in memory of Mr. Dayne Purvis has been established by his family and friends to honor his integrity, work ethic, and love of community. Mr. Purvis’ greatest love was for his wife, Pat Tidwell Purvis, and their three children, Michael, David, and Nichole.

A long-time resident of Coffee County, Mr. Purvis was an alumnus of the former South Georgia College; thus, his family is pleased to be able to offer this scholarship in his memory to a new generation of SGSC students wishing to further their education and pursue their dreams. Contributions to this scholarship fund can be made payable to: South Georgia State College Foundation and mailed to SGSC Foundation - Office of External Affairs, 100 West College Park Drive, Douglas, GA 31533. Simply notate Dayne Purvis Leadership Award on the check’s memo line.

All gifts to the Foundation qualify for the maximum allowable deduction under the law.  For more information on the SGSC Foundation or the Dayne Purvis Leadership Award Scholarship Fund, please contact the SGSC Foundation by phone at 912-260-4274 or by email at
