Congratulations to our 2018-2019 REACH Scholars: Mona Eady, Jaabari Woodard, Tyler Brock, Sania Ross, and Izabella Cleghorn.
REACH (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) Georgia is the state's first needs-based mentorship and college scholarship program. Launched by Governor Nathan Deal in 2012, the program "rewards students for self-accountability, promotes parent involvement and provides motivation and support; all factors that we know are critical in student educational achievement,” said Governor Deal at the launch of the program.
The program is administered by the Georgia Student Finance Authority (GSFA). Donations from local educators in Irwin County has made it possible for local students to be eligible to receive at least $150,000 in scholarships for post-secondary education. At this year's ceremony on October 24, Dr. Thad Clayton, Superintendent of Irwin County Schools, commended the employees of Irwin County Schools and the community for supporting the program.
