Gandy Family Trust Scholarships Awarded To Three Students

May 20, 2019

Three local Bill Gandy Family Trust scholarship winners have been announced.

Gandy Memorial Scholarship winners are Lexxi Baggett, daughter of Garry and Vicki Baggett; and  McKayla McConathy, daughter of Gene and Sharon Findley.  Both graduating Northview High School seniors earned cash scholarships for their community service, documented volunteer hours, and academic scholastic record.

The Solon Lee Gandy Scholarship recipient is Jay Jackson, son of Stephanie Myrick and Jason Jackson. Jay is a Flomaton High School graduate whose academic and athletic history stood out among the other applicants. His scholarship will follow him to the college of his choice.

This marked the 11th year of Gandy Family Trust  scholarship awards given with funds raised through donations and various family fundraisers. A total of 29 high school scholarships have been awarded thus far, ranging from $250 to $1,000 each.
