CLARKESVILLE - Britney Vickery and Ivy Hall, both residents of Habersham County, received Outstanding Georgia Citizen Awards on Thursday, January 17 during Initials, Inc. Leader Day at the State Capitol.
The awards were presented by Secretary of State Brian Kemp with District 10 State Representative, Terry Rogers and District 28 State Representative, Dan Gasaway in attendance. Vickery and Hall said they were surprised and humbled by the honor.

"Our story from the bedroom to the boardroom resonates with women from all walks of life desiring an outlet to contribute to their family financially and gain independence.
