Lambert is a 2014 graduate of Charlton Christian Academy in Folkston, Ga. After SGSC, Lambert plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree in health and physical education and hopes to be a health teacher in a local school system. The Harry Dixon Scholarship was established in 2000 by the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Georgia Foundation. According to a spokesman for the organization, the scholarship is a “suitable and lasting tribute to (former) Rep. Dixon for his 38 years of service in the General Assembly, 26 of which as chairman of the Regulated Beverages Committee.” Dixon passed away in March 2012. Lambert was congratulated on her accomplishments and for receiving the scholarship by Fred Kitchens, executive director and general counsel for the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Georgia Foundation. SGSC is thankful to the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of Georgia Foundation for its continued support of SGSC’s students.
