REACH Georgia was launched February 6, 2012, at Georgia Institute of Technology. AT&T donated $250,000 seed funding for REACH Georgia’s first pilot year.

The REACH Georgia Scholarship “rewards students for self-accountability, promotes parent involvement and provides motivation and support; all factors that we know are critical in student educational achievement,” said Governor Nathan Deal at the launch of the program.

In the first pilot year, REACH Georgia partnered with Douglas, Rabun and Dodge County School Systems, committed 15 middle school students as Scholars and invested $150,000 to student scholarships. For academic-year 2016-2017, four years after the launch, REACH Georgia serves approximately 700 students in 69 school districts across the state with over $11 million committed to future scholarships for these Scholars.

Douglas County Schools has 7 REACH Georgia recipients for the 2016-17 school year. TMS' Jade Cervantes is one of those recipients. Congratulations Jade. We are proud of you and your efforts.
