"The toughest part about being in college is paying for it, because I actually don't get the HOPE Scholarship. Gwinnett Tech offered me an amazing scholarship. I got the Hudgens Award. Without that, I actually don't think I would have gone to college. College has changed my life by allowing me to go further in life."
- Kerry Brewer, Gwinnett Technical College fashion merchandising alumni
