A 1950 graduate of Woman’s College, Lloyd gave UNCG a $4 million gift to endow the Honors College in 2006. It is the largest alumni gift the university has ever received. In 2009, the university gave her an honorary doctorate, naming her Doctor of Humane Letters.
The Aubrey Paul and Georgia Garrison Lloyd International Honors College was named in honor of Rebecca Lloyd’s parents.
A retired U.S. Navy commander, Lloyd later worked as a commercial Realtor in San Diego.
Lloyd once said, “The International Honors College will give students the international viewpoint that’s needed in their education. To the extent that my gift could help world peace come about, I’m happy to be making it.”
