Dear Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,
Boldly Committed to Student Success
Dreams of a future career and attending college to pursue those dreams became a reality for four Barrow County eighth grade students when they were selected as the 2017-2018 REACH (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) Georgia Scholars for the Barrow County School System. They are joining a very exclusive group of students across the state who every day are striving to maintain good grades, behavior and attendance in order to graduate high school and college prepared for a career. REACH students are paired with a mentor and an academic coach through high school. Scholars who successfully complete the program are awarded a $10,000 scholarship that can be used at any HOPE eligible college in Georgia. Many colleges are matching or double-matching these funds. The scholarship is awarded in addition to any other grant or scholarship the student receives.
The BCSS REACH Scholars for 2017-2018 are: (L-R) Cheyanne Roche from Westside Middle School, Angel Hopkins from Haymon-Morris Middle School, Khristian Franklin from Bear Creek Middle School, and Roman Valderaz from Russel Middle School.
