REACH Scholarship Signing Ceremony

Monday, October 28th was the REACH Scholarship Signing Day across the state of Georgia. Every year, Meriwether County awards 5 REACH Scholarships to 8th graders in the district. This year, scholarships were awarded to Samira Brawner and Carolyn Hanks from Manchester Middle School, as well as Devonte Gordon, Caleb Wells, and Isiah Toombs from Greenville Middle School. These students must maintain a 2.5 average, maintain good attendance and behavior, meet with their mentor once a month, and participate in REACH activities. If they meet these requirements, they will receive a $10,000 scholarship toward a 2 or 4 year Georgia College/University that accepts the Hope Scholarship. On Monday, these five students officially signed their REACH Scholarship contracts pledging to adhere to these requirements and received their LARGE checks for $10,000! What an amazing opportunity for these students!
