Accepting the endowment from Patricia Gavel is Rhonda Toon, vice president of advancement at Gordon State College, as Glenna and Melanie Waller look on.
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.
