On Friday, May 15, 2015 Fulton County Schools hosted its second annual Volunteer of the Year Celebration.  Sponsored by the Atlanta Hawks and with support by the Fulton Education Foundation, Fulton Teachers' Credit Union, Chick-fil-A Foundation and Walton Communities, the 2015 awards luncheon honored 82 volunteers from schools in the Fulton County School System.  Volunteers were selected to represent their school as Volunteer of the Year based on their dedication and commitment to Fulton County Schools.

The luncheon included entertainment, a​wards and door prizes as well as appearances by the Atlanta Hawks cheerleaders and team mascot, Harry the Hawk. More than 200 principals, school leaders, school board members and volunteers from all areas of the school system attended. A few highlights about the 2015 Volunteers of the Year are included below.
