   MMS Students Selected as REACH Georgia Scholars

Jorge Calles and Viviana Salazar are REACH Scholars

During today’s Statewide Signing Day, Gov. Nathan Deal welcomed two Marietta City School 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 Jorge Calles and Viviana Salazar.

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.

When these scholars graduate from high school, they will receive up to a $10,000 scholarship of funds donated by partnering organizations. More>>
