It is an easy process for the students and we hope to see our applicants increase again next year.” Said Heyde, “As always, we are impressed by the caliber of the students here in Fulton County.”

This year's keynote speaker was Larry Cunningham. Mr. Cunningham is the current Fulton County Community Foundation Scholarship Committee Chairman.
