The City of Lawrenceville and the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) have announced Daniel Ray Sosebee, Sr. and Mary Frazier Long as the 2016 recipients of the Heritage Trail Medallions.

The walking trail was constructed in 2013 to pay homage to individuals – throughout Gwinnett County history – who have made significant contributions to the City of Lawrenceville.
