This past March, the NEWH Atlanta Annual Scholarship Awards Gala was held at The Fox Theater in the Egyptian Ballroom in midtown Atlanta. The gala honors college students who are interested in working in the hospitality design industry and are chosen to recieve scholarships on behalf of the Hospitality Industry Network (NEWH).
This year, Sims Patrick Studio President Libby Patrick served as a judge, and Sims Patrick Studio designer Ginger Willis, a past winner of one of the scholarships, gave a speech. Many hospitality designers attended the gala, which included dinner, cocktails, socializing, and an amazing acrobatic performance.
Designer Natalia Panagopoulos said, "It's a great event that helps out the design community by helping students reach their goals. Plus it's always fun to see everyone from the industry come together and celebrate a special event."
