BMS and FVMS 8th Grade students, Davion James, Lauren Hammock, Terkel Jefferson, and Willie Mena were chosen as 2014-15 REACH Scholars in the state of Georgia. REACH stands for Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen. It is a "needs-based mentorship and scholarship program designed to encourage students, starting in middle school, to persist in their educational pursuits. These students are provided with academic, social, and financial supports needed to graduate from high school, access college, achieve post-secondary success and be prepared for the 21st century workforce."
They were recognized at a ceremony held September 24th at Byron Middle School. First Lady Sandra Deal presented the REACH Scholars with a commendation. Governor Nathan Deal started the REACH program in February 2012. Click here to learn more about REACH.
