Walker Butin, of St. Simons Island, was recently honored a Georgia Institute of Technology alumni event with the prestigious 2019 Bill Dart Endowed Georgia Tech Scholarship.

“My dad was passionate about many things, but none more than Georgia Tech,” said Matt Dart. “He saw all four of his children graduate from Tech, and we even had a dog named Buzz. He was a standout student and athlete at Glynn Academy. He would be thrilled to see a similarly gifted young man like Walker become a Yellow Jacket and be honored with the scholarship bearing the Dart name.”
