GCA seniors, Olivia Penela and Gabby Hardee, were awarded James Eunice Legacy Scholarships on Friday afternoon by John and Tammy Eunice. These scholarships are given to young people who exemplify the ideals of James Eunice. James was a 17 year old senior at Valdosta High School who went missing while duck hunting on Jan. 15, 2011. He was recovered 17 days later on Jan. 31. James lived intentionally for Christ, shared his faith freely, and loved everyone unconditionally.
When asked by his classmates what he wanted to do after graduation, James would always reply, “ All I want to do is make a difference in people’s lives.” The scholarship is presented to young people who make a difference in their world.
