Congratulations to Prayer Idowu, McNair Middle School's Award recipient of the REACH Georgia Program.
Prayer was one of Eight Fulton County middle school students who recently signed commitments to graduate high school and accept a $10,000 college scholarship funded by the REACH Georgia program.
The event featured Gov. Nathan Deal, Fulton County Schools Superintendent Robert Avossa, Fulton school board members, principals, counselors, graduation coaches and other district leaders.
The REACH Georgia program (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen), launched in 2012. The REACH Georgia program is a needs-based scholarship designed to promote academic success and expand access to higher education.
As a part of the program, the students signed contracts to maintain a certain grade point average, remain crime, drug and behavior issue free, and meet with a volunteer mentor until they graduate from high school. Their parents or guardians also signed contracts to support their student through their education. When these scholars graduate from high school, they will receive up to a $10,000 scholarship – $2,500 each year for up to four years – to be used at a HOPE eligible college. Many colleges are matching this scholarship and some are double matching the scholarship, providing scholars additional resources for their college education.
More than 100 students across Georgia in 23 school systems signed contracts for the 2014-2015 school year.
Please join us in congratulating our first REACH scholar.
Prayer Idowu, representing McNair Middle School
Way to go Prayer!!!
