SOUTH FORSYTH, Ga. — A South Forsyth High School graduate has been awarded a scholarship by Alpharetta American Legion Post 201.

Liam Kilgore of Cumming was presented his $1,000 scholarship at the veterans organization’s July 15 general membership meeting. Kilgore is a 2019 graduate of South Forsyth High School and was among a group of five graduating seniors chosen from among the applicants.
