The ALTA Foundation is pleased to announce this year’s L. Keith Wood Memorial Scholarship recipients. The foundation poured through dozens of applications from some incredibly smart, talented, and hard-working students. Each winner will receive a $2,500 scholarship to assist with school tuition and expenses. The funds were donated to the foundation by the estate of past ALTA President and Chairman L. Keith Wood. These impressive students will be recognized on ALTA Day at the Truist Atlanta Open, July 26, before the day session matches on center court, and they will be featured in an upcoming issue of Net News.
