By Alyson Shields Reporter

Nine students were awarded a total of $5,700 in scholarships this year by the city of Gainesville as part of the 'You're The Reason' scholarship fund.

The money is raised by city employees who give through payroll deductions, and city spokeswoman Catiel Felts said they were able to increase funding this year with partial proceeds from the Spring Chicken Festival. 

Scholarship winners were: Ben Beebe, Daniel Costantini, Megan Dyer, Victoria Glover, Ryan Hogan, Olivia Mansfield, Lauren Shubert ($1000 recipient), Leah Stowers and Sidney Summer.

Felts said the city is now partnering with the North Georgia Community Foundation to help disseminate the scholarships.
