Cobb EMC Community Foundation Supports ADay For Reinhardt

The Cobb EMC Community Foundation has been a strong supporter of ADay for Reinhardt for many years, and the organization recently made its annual gift to the University scholarship program.

ADay for Reinhardt relies on community businesses, organizations and individuals to assist with student scholarship for Cherokee County residents attending Reinhardt University.

“The Cobb EMC Community Foundation proudly supports programs that invest in students within our service district that want to further their education. The ADay program at Reinhardt allows us that opportunity,” said Carol Shaddix, chairwoman of The Cobb EMC Community Foundation.

Dale Morrissey, director of development and external relations for Reinhardt, said the University is thankful for the Cobb EMC members who choose to round up their bill each month to help fund the foundation and to the foundation board of directors who choose to support Reinhardt.

“We appreciate all that the Cobb EMC Community Foundation does for Reinhardt University,” Morrissey said. “Their longtime support of the University shows their connection and dedication to the community and helping to educate the leaders of our future.”

ADay for Reinhardt has provided more than $4.8 million in financial assistance for Cherokee County residents attending Reinhardt University since its inception in 1988.
