The Abbie DeLoach Foundation (ADF) announced that Chad Willis, Georgia Southern University’s head coach of women’s volleyball, will be guest speaker at its Fourth Annual Scholarship Luncheon and award presentation to be held at the Savannah Golf Club on April 29. 

Local media personalities Frank “The Big Guy” Sulkowski, anchor and reporter at ABC affiliate WJCL, and Anita Hagin, publisher of Savannah Magazine, will serve as co-hosts. 

ADF will gather with family, friends of the foundation, and members of the local community to celebrate 29 scholarship recipients from the class of 2021 and 2022 that exemplify academic excellence, exemplary service work and athletic commitment. .

Doors will open at 11 a.m., and the luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. 

“We are grateful to come together and celebrate each recipient and their accomplishments. This is a vibrant scholarship class of students and organizations that represent Abbie’s unique spirit and positive impact in the community,” stated Jimmy DeLoach, Jr., Abbie’s dad, and president of the Abbie DeLoach Foundation.

 The luncheon is the ADF’s premier event and fundraiser. Each year the foundation compiles a commemorative book about the good works that have been accomplished in Abbie’s name and gives a copy to each member of the scholarship class.
