” I am glad that Zach was chosen for the inaugural George Martin memorial scholarship. George loved the auction industry and always provided young auctioneers the time to help them in any way. George believed in helping others and I am sure he would be proud of Zach for having the desire to become an auctioneer. This scholarship was established in order to allow young adults the opportunity to attend auction school and to carry on George's tradition of helping others.” Jeff Martin, President/CEO
