The Ralph and Katie Johnson Scholarship has been increased to $500. Ralph and Katie Johnson were active volunteers with the Friends for over 10 years. They diligently worked keeping all of the paperbacks straight for nearly every book sale during that 10+ year period. This scholarship is given to honor their memories. If, in years past, you were in the paperback section of the monthly sales, you would have seen Ralph and Katie scurrying around straightening up those thousands of paperbacks that are for sale. Ralph and Katie always saw the need for young adults to continue higher education degrees and it is for that reason that this scholarship will be used to pay for the tests required for students to take in order to earn their GED. FOTAL will continue to fund the required testing necessary for GED students who are working through the Lanier Technical School program which is housed in Alpharetta.
