DAWSON, GA (WALB) - The Terrell County NAACP celebrated a century of big dreams and bold victories.

That was the theme at their 15th annual Freedom Fund Banquet on Saturday.

About 200 members and community leaders from across south Georgia attended the event.

For this centennial celebration leaders hope its members will remain vigilant in the mission of the NAACP.

"There are still greater things to be done and we're still here to ensure equality of all people especially minorities," Said Rev. Ezekiel Holley, 21st District NAACP President.

Four young people received one thousand dollar scholarships from the Terrell County NAACP Branch to help them continue their studies.
