A difficult decision of choosing the right college might be a little bit easier for two Gainesville High School students. Jorge Gonzalez and Jhaiquashia Peterson were awarded scholarships to Florida A&M University in Tallahassee on Tuesday evening at the eighth annual Generation Inspiration Youth Leadership Academy opening program and scholarship ceremony at Gainesville High School. Generation Inspiration is a youth leadership organization that provides Gainesville High School students with life skills, volunteer experience and opportunities to learn about the history and economy of Gainesville and Hall County.
