SNELLVILLE (July 2004) - She belongs to America and the world now, but many in Snellville and Gwinnett County will always remember Diana Degarmo as "our little girl."
I first met Diana in 1995 when she was six years old. We were planning the second Relay For Life in Gwinnett and looking for some good talent for the Friday night entertainment. Committee member Joy Purvis, owner of a talent and modeling school, told us about a little girl with a whole lot of talent that would love to be part of the event. (Joy now owns Hot Shot Kids in Atlanta).
