ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The University of Georgia has received $1 million to promote alcohol education on campus.

The school says the money will help the University Health Center teach students about responsible decision-making about alcohol and drugs.

The gift will support the health center’s John Fontaine Jr. Center for Alcohol Awareness and Education, which provides a range of prevention, intervention and recovery support services.

The university says the gift is part of continuing support from Jack and Nancy Fontaine of Houston. The center was established in 2006 in the name of their son, who died in an alcohol-related car crash when he was 16.

The Fontaines have donated more than $4 million to fund UGA’s alcohol education initiatives.
