Non Sibi, Sed Aliis

Not for Self, but for Others

The Georgia Trustees

In conjunction with the Governor’s Office, the Georgia Historical Society reestablished the Georgia Trustees as a way of recognizing Georgians whose accomplishments and community service reflect the highest ideals of the founding body of Trustees. The original Georgia Trustees, a governing body chartered and appointed by His Majesty King George II of England in 1732 to establish a new colony in North America, founded Georgia upon the principle of Non Sibi, Sed Aliis, “Not for Self but for Others.” GHS and the Governor’s Office reestablished the Trustees in 2009. The Governor annually appoints new Trustees whose history-making accomplishments and service reflect the original Trustees’ ideals.

 

The Georgia History Festival is a program of the Georgia Historical Society.
