Two Muscogee County School District students were selected as winners of two separate scholarships from the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee
The foundation selected Maya Allen from Carver High School
as the winner of this year’s James Henry Smith and Gladys Manning Smith
Scholarship. Caylin Carter from Hardaway High School was selected to receive
the Jeanette Williamson Craig & Eugene L. Craig Scholarship.
Allen was surprised with the news in one of her classes at
school by the foundation and MCSD Superintendent Dr. Lewis.
“She is driven, ambitious, and passionate about achieving
her goals,” says Betsy Covington, president and chief executive officer of the
Community Foundation.” We can’t help but think that the Smiths would
enthusiastically approve of her selection.”
The Smith Scholarship will pay up to $7,000 annually for
four years of education.
Caylin, the recipient of the Craig Scholarship, was also
surprised with the news at her school by the Community Foundation’s Board and
“This scholarship will help Caylin achieve her goal of
attending college,” Covington says. “She is a dedicated student who also looks
for opportunities to serve her community. We are proud to have her as the 2019
Craig Scholarship recipient and have no doubt she will do great things.”
The Craig Scholarship program awards $5,000 each year and is
renewable for up to four years, provided that the student maintains a full-time
enrollment during the regular school year and at least a 2.5 GPA.
Congratulations to Maya and Caylin. We wish you both the best
in your future endeavors!
