A fourth generation West Pointer, devoted Dawg, graduate of the Medical College of Georgia, family dentist, and Mayor of his hometown, Drew Ferguson is a Georgian through and through.
Drew was accepted by MCG even before graduating from UGA where he earned a degree in dental medicine in 1992. He then founded a successful family dental practice. He has been an Adjunct and faculty member of the MCG School of Dentistry since 1998.
In 1997, Drew served on the West Point Board of Alderman and on a number of community boards including the West Point 2100 Foundation Board.
