The programs spanned two days of recognizing student achievements and scholarship presentations. Over 160 students were honored and more than $1.2 million was awarded in scholarships.

Brandy Walker of Piedmont received one of two Outstanding Achievement Awards given at the Ayers Campus event.

She is also a volunteer through Eastside Baptist Church in Gadsden, where her husband is the pastor.
