      Georgia Southern University faculty member Karl E. Peace, Ph. D. was honored on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives for his numerous professional and charitable contributions.
      Peace is a Georgia Cancer Coalition Distinguished Cancer Scholar, Senior Research Scientist and Professor of Biostatistics in the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern U.
      Peace was honored by Rep. Robert Wittman (R-VA), who cited Peace's numerous contributions to drug research and development, public health, biostatistics and philanthropy.
      Wittman said, "Dr. Peace has a dedicated record of philanthropy to education. He has created twenty-one endowments at five institutions including three at his alma mater, the Medical College of Virginia and one at Randolph-Macon College. He endowed the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health, the first school of public health in the University of Georgia System.
      "His endowments have enabled hundreds of students to complete their undergraduate or graduate degrees. Dr. Peace has generously donated time and resources to organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Georgia Cancer Coalition, the Southeast Georgia Cancer Alliance and the Southwest Georgia Cancer Coalition that are dedicated to cancer research, treatments and cures."
      "I am grateful to Congressman Wittman for his acknowledgement of my achievements on the floor of the U.S. Congress and their inclusion in the Congressional Record," said Peace. "This is good for the schools with which I've been associated and especially for our Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health at Georgia Southern University."
