The Georgia Power Foundation, Inc. has been a strong supporter of ADay for Reinhardt for more than 20 years, and the organization recently made its annual gift.
ADay for Reinhardt is a successful scholarship program that has provided more than $4.8 million to students in Cherokee and Pickens County. Georgia Power Area Manager Joe Brownlee presented a $3,000 check to the University.
“ADay is important because it keeps the local community involved and engaged with the University,” said Brownlee. “It provides the community with a way to support local students who, in all likelihood, want to live in this community after graduating. ADay provides the Georgia Power Foundation with the ability to partner with the University to support the hopes and dreams of Cherokee students. The hope is for a better way of life that comes with a quality education.”
These scholarships rely on support from community businesses, organizations and individuals to provide scholarships for Cherokee and Pickens County residents attending Reinhardt University.
“Georgia Power’s support for local students has made a significant impact on Reinhardt and the surrounding community,” said Dale Morrissey, director of development and external relations for Reinhardt University. “We are grateful for all they have done to improve our students’ educational experiences.”
