The 2016 Scholarship Gala was, to quote Mr. Derrick Moore, truly an “extraordinary” evening!
We moved the Scholarship Gala out to Bynuh’s Field this year and guests entered using the farm road, which allowed them to drive by our cattle. Brownie the Donkey was also greeting guests from the front pasture. It was a rainy week, but the weather cleared on Friday and the setting was stunning.
The 2016 Gala was a special event, indeed, as we celebrated our 20 seniors – each accepted to college, many of them accepted to multiple colleges; we honored Dr. David Tribble on his 25 years of service and Ms. Minnie Wingster on her 30+ years of service before both retire; we capped off our yearlong 275th Anniversary celebration; and we were all rejuvenated by Mr. Derrick Moore’s keynote address!
Derrick was so powerful that there were shouts of “amen” throughout the tent as he spoke – and he even ended his speech the way he sends the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets onto the field, “We gonna fiiiiight…till we can’t fight no more…”
Awesome. Inspirational. Motivational. We sincerely appreciate Derrick Moore’s willingness to join us.
Thank you to all the sponsors who helped make this event possible! Their logos are scrolling in the left margin and we hope that you will help us thank them by patronizing their businesses.
