Wife to serve out late husband's Regent term

April 9, 2003

(Atlanta-AP) -- The wife of the late George "John" Hunt the Third was sworn in Monday to complete her husband's unexpired term on the University System of Georgia Board of Regents.

Governor Perdue's office announced the appointment of Julie Ewing Hunt of Tifton yesterday. She will represent the Second Congressional District through 2003.

Sixty-three-year-old John Hunt died March 19th. He was president of J-H Services Incorporated in Tifton and had operated restaurants in south Georgia and Florida. His other business interests included apartments and real estate.

In 1997, then-Governor Zell Miller appointed John Hunt to the Board of Regents representing the Second District.
