He and Mrs. Cheek have been major financial contributors to the University and the athletic programs, both as founding members of the UGA President’s Club, along with being Silver Circle donors to athletics and members of the Magill and Hedges Society. He is also a proud member of the Quarterback Club of Athens and a 40 plus

He received numerous awards including being selected as the Spirits Industry Executive of the Year in 1995. In addition, he later served on five corporate boards, and is still active on two.  Mike has been a dedicated golfer for over 60 years, and is currently a member of the Athens Country Club and Scotland’s Royal Dornoch Golf Club, one of the world’s top ten courses. In addition to the enjoyment of playing, he contributed to the growth of the game, first, as a member of the Atlanta Classic Foundation, which has hosted a PGA event in Atlanta for over 30 years.
As a former member of Louisville, KY’s Valhalla Golf Club, he served as Vice Chairman of the 1996 and 2000 PGA
Championships, along with the 2008 Ryder Cup, all played at Valhalla.

Mike is married to the former Runell Short of Macon for 59 years, they have two daughters, Kelly Johnson and Andrea
