Atlanta Toyota honors Gwinnett students and teachers

On Monday, August 1, Atlanta Toyota honored 16 Gwinnett County Public Schools graduates through the Atlanta Toyota Scholarship Program. Scholarship applicants submitted two essays on the following topics:
- Experiences in Gwinnett County Public Schools that helped shaped the student's decisions to continue their education at the postsecondary level
- A teacher who most inspired the student to achieve.

The honored students each received a $2,000 scholarship and each "inspiring" teacher received $1,000. Over the past three years, Atlanta Toyota has provided $141,000 in scholarships to Gwinnett students and their teachers.

Congratulations to the winners of the 2005 Atlanta Toyota Scholarships and their selected teacher honorees! (Unless noted, the teacher taught at the graduate's high school).
