Since we began the Faces of Hall County project, we have had the chance to profile hundreds of Hall County residents! From doctors to students, small business owners, chefs, pharmacists, coaches and teachers; we’ve had the chance to meet some of the most interesting people in Hall County.
We have pulled together a list of the top 10 Faces of Hall County in 2017; and we invite you to scroll through and take a minute to read about your neighbors interests and love for the community.
In 2018, we will continue featuring local personalities and we would love your help on featuring the best of Hall County. If you have a Faces of Hall County nomination please email: email@example.com.
