  • Ten $2,000 Legacy Student Scholarships.

“We are committed to supporting educators and school systems throughout our service area, so scholarship time is an important time at Peach State,” remarked Marshall Boutwell, Peach State’s President/CEO. “We were founded by Gwinnett County educators in 1961 and we honor that foundation by providing opportunities for the educators and leaders of the future.”
