As reported 48 years ago in the pages of The Columbia News, Thursday, Sept. 26, 1957:
Dorothy Dozier of Appling was featured in a story in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Sept. 22, 1957. The story, which carried Miss Dozier's picture, was the first in a series of seven articles on 4-H Club members who were presented $500 scholarships by The Atlanta Journal for outstanding 4-H Club work.
The story recalls that Miss Dozier's 4-H Club work two years ago won her a national title and a $300 scholarship. "Now a continued interest in the rural youth organization has won her another scholarship, this time $500 from The Atlanta Journal," the story says.
