The Hampton Inn Town Center in Kennesaw recently received a Hampton Team Award, the 2013 Lighthouse Award. The Lighthouse Award is given annually to the top five percent of Hampton Inns in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Columbia. It is recognized for high rankings in accommodations, service and quality. The team awards are given to top hotels and outstanding team members who lead the way in making connections with guests and with each other.

The Hampton Inn Town Center, owned by Bina and Bharat Desai, celebrated it grand reopening in May 2013 after an extensive renovation. The center is at 871 Cobb Place Blvd., Kennesaw.

She attended The Walker School from Pre-K to 8th grade and is currently a sophomore at Blessed Trinity High School in Roswell.
