CUMMING -- Two recent Forsyth County high school graduates received scholarships named in honor of soldiers who died in the Vietnam War by a local veterans’ organization. Rachel Priest and Ally Williams were recently awarded the inaugural scholarships from Cumming Chapter 1030 of the Vietnam Veterans of America. “We wanted to initiate the scholarship program to … reward deserving high school seniors who are the children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren of U.S. military veterans,” said Gary Ely, chapter president, in a news release.
