“With every part of my heart, thank you. Your support makes a huge difference – not just for me but for all the other students who get to take advantage of these scholarships. It made a huge difference.”

Blake, Class of 2012



“My scholarship has opened doors for me that might have stayed closed if not for the support it has provided. I am thankful to those who see my future as a valuable investment. I plan to make that investment a worthwhile one.”

Brittany, Class of 2018



“Scholarships through the Foundation really helped me and my family pay for my schooling. I graduated with very little to almost no debt because of that. It really helped me get through school.”

Nathan, Class of 2014


“I am very appreciative to Athens State University for providing me with a quality education and for being flexible enough that a young mom could actually complete her degree and still do the things she needed to do with a family and job. It really made a difference in my life.”

Cathy, Class of 1993
