Thanks to Peach State Federal Credit Union, students in our REACH Georgia Scholarship program will benefit from a generous donation of $7,500 over the next five years. The credit union has committed to donating $1,500 to the program each year through 2026.
Through the REACH Georgia scholarship program, students who are selected are paired with a mentor and an academic coach through high school. They must maintain good behavior, grades, attendance, and graduate from 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.
“This year, we are excited that Peach State Federal Credit Union has chosen to not only support the REACH scholarship, but to also donate funds to allow the scholars to benefit from enrichment activities such as college visits,” said Sherri Perry, Barrow County School System REACH Georgia Coordinator.
Peach State Federal Credit Union says support of REACH aligns with their foundation in education. “Our credit union was founded by educators 60 years ago this year. We honor that foundation through our continued support of education throughout our service area,” said Peach State’s President/CEO, Marshall Boutwell. “We’re excited to help Barrow County students achieve educational success through this program. “
