Aiyana Boston and Carter Edwards Named Georgia REACH Scholars

Aiyana Boston and Carter Edwards are only in the 8th Grade, but already the pair have college on the brain. Earlier this week, the Dublin Middle Schoolers became the latest Dublin City Schools students to become REACH Scholars.

REACH - Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen - is a key component of the Governor’s Complete College Georgia, which identifies strategies for the state’s public and private colleges to achieve the goal of having 60% of Georgia’s adult population earn some type of postsecondary credential by 2025. Its mission is to provide Georgia’s most promising students with academic, social and financial support needed to graduate from high school and college prepared for work.

REACH begins in middle school with teachers and administration nominating 8th Graders who have demonstrated academic promise as well as good attendance and behavior. When a student successfully completes REACH and graduates from high school, they are awarded a $10,000 scholarship for up to four years of college - $2500 per year - that can be used at any Georgia HOPE eligible two or four-year college.

Both Boston and Edwards have been part of Dublin City Schools since Pre-K! Fighting Irish Family, join us in congratulating these inspiring scholars and their proud families!
