In March of this year in beautiful Savannah GAFSED awarded it’s second annual Randy Carlisle Memorial College Scholarship to Miss Anna Jones of Macon Georgia. This 1,000.00 scholarship is going to help Anna earn her degree at Mercer University. Anna’s father and mother, Jim and Barbara Jones were present on Friday night to receive this award for her. I’m sure Randy would have been proud of this association for not only playing a key role in the leadership of our industry, but also acknowledging the individuals that make GAFSED great.

For a third year now GAFSED has decided to partner with Randy’s legacy in offering an educational scholarship to the owners, employees, their children and grandchildren to be used to help further their education past high school. 2016 will bring an even larger first place award with two additional finalists receiving awards too. We at GAFSED are excited about this opportunity to “Give Back” to those who have made this association the leader in our industry that it is today.

This scholarship will be awarded each year to a deserving high school senior or college student who has ties to GAFSED and to our industry here in Georgia.
