Members of the Leadership Lamar Class of 2015 established a scholarship endowment fund for the Larry and Glenna Waller Scholarship at their recent graduation ceremony.
The group made an initial gift of more than $2,000 and expects to raise the required $25,000 in the next five years.
Patricia Gavel, executive director of Towaliga Accountability Courts, Inc. and a 2015 graduate of Leadership Lamar, spearheaded the effort.
The late Larry Waller was a former Lamar County sheriff and faculty member at Gordon State College.
Anyone wishing to contribute to this scholarship may send a check to the Gordon State College Foundation, 419 College Drive, Barnesville.
Checks should be marked as being for the Waller Scholarship. Gifts are tax-deductible.
