UGA student shot, wounded in April will set up Foundation

The official unveiling will come next week at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center: his family says Tate Prezzano will launch a foundation that will set up scholarships for student-athletes at the University of Georgia, those who compete in non-scholarship sports. The hospital says the foundation also will serve as a way to increase security measures on the UGA campus to prevent future incidents from occurring.

Prezzano, a 22 year-old lacrosse player at UGA, was shot and critically wounded in an April robbery attempt on South Milledge Avenue in Athens. 

Details Prezzano's Foundation will be laid out in a news conference set for next Wednesday at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center on Prince Avenue in Athens.
