SDBA dishing out scholarships and awards

1/31/2014, 2:48 p.m.

The South DeKalb Business Association will hand out scholarships and recognize members and community leaders at its annual Scholarship/Appreciation Breakfast on Feb. 7.

The scholarships will go to Georgia Piedmont Technical College students. The recognition and awards will go businesses that have risen above the odds and at the same time shared their resources to positively impact SDBA’s constituents.

State Rep. Alisha Morgan Thomas, who represents House District 39, will deliver the keynote address.

Sen. Gloria Butler and Tommy Dortch, president of TWD Inc., are also expected to speak.

Gospel DJ Reggie Gay will be master of ceremonies.

The event was rescheduled from Jan. 30 because of the Jan.28 snow storm that paralyzed metro-Atlanta and closed government, businesses, schools and colleges.

It takes place 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Georgia Piedmont Technical College

Conference Center, 495 N. Indian Creek Road in Clarkston.
