Marietta Middle School students selected as REACH Georgia Scholars

Five Marietta City Schools (MCS) students to the Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen (REACH) Georgia program, a needs-based scholarship designed to promote academic success and expand access to higher education. The Marietta Middle School students chosen to join REACH Georgia are Beatriz Coronado, Diego Grimaldo, Michelle Kariuki, Ifeoma Precious Ojiagbaje, and Barry Pierce.
As a part of the program, 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.  Learn More

Marietta Reads! is a citywide effort to foster reading and literacy in our community.
