"We were overwhelmed by the state-wide response to our grant program, receiving over 630 applications from passionate entrepreneurs from as far north as Calhoun, Georgia to as far south as Valdosta, Ga. and everywhere in between," said Russo Turner. "It was a really tough decision."
The deserving recipients of the Cecilia Russo Marketing 15th Anniversary Entrepreneurship Grants are:
