The Snellville Commerce Club awarded its 2008 FBLA/DECA $1000 Scholarship to Ms. Bessy Baby of South Gwinnett High School and Mr. David Pruitt of Brookwood High School. Each recipient has demonstrated academic achievement while giving time to the Snellville Community. Funds will be paid to the college of their choice to assist their respective academic pursuits.
Mr. Pruitt has worked as an engineering intern during the past summer and is taking an all honors course load during his senior year. Traveling internationally for missions with Grace Church, he has also given time locally in Snellville. David plans to major in Civil Engineering at Auburn University.
Ms. Baby is the SGHS Valedictorian for 2008 and a recipient of the FBLA Excellence award. She still manages time for a several civic activities and to teach Sunday school at St. Mary’s Church. Ms. Baby has been accepted next fall to the University of Georgia in Athens.
