Fulton County District 5 Commissioner Marvin S.

“Once again, I am overjoyed to help our students get off to the best start that they can," says District 5 Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr.   “We hope to reach families in District 5 communities to provide them supplies and  resources they need to assist their children  in school."

School supplies will be provided to approximately one thousand (1,000) students in attendance on a first-come-first-served basis. Sponsors will award ten (10) $500 book scholarships to this year’s essay winners to help them further their studies in college.
