TYRONE, Ga. -- Rep. Virgil Fludd (D-Tyrone) has renewed his Fludd Scholarship Award for high school students.
The monetary award is given annually to exceptional teens from Fayette and south Fulton counties, the areas Fludd represents.
"The scholarship program was created to recognize the academic performance and community service of students in the south metro area," Fludd said in a statement. "We are delighted to be able to continue this program and even more excited about helping these young people with their college careers."
More information about applying for the scholarship will be available soon at virgilfludd.org.
Money for the scholarship program comes from the annual Virgil Fludd Scholarship Golf Tournament. This year's tournament will be held Monday, Oct. 14 at Flat Creek Golf Club in Peachtree City.
