Foundation Scholars Reap Rewards from Evening for ABAC Sponsors
TIFTON—Top academic students from nine high schools in South Georgia reap tremendous scholarship benefits from sponsors of the annual Evening for ABAC event at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
Jodie Snow, chief operating officer for the ABAC Foundation, said three of the top five graduates from Berrien High School, Colquitt County High School, Cook High School, Fitzgerald High School, Irwin County High School, Tift County High School, Tiftarea Academy, Turner County High School, and Worth County High School are eligible to receive $2,500 scholarships.
“Over $50,000 has been awarded for this Foundation Scholars program this year, and we anticipate our demand to increase next year,” Snow, a 2000 ABAC graduate, said.
Gold Sponsors at the Evening for ABAC event coming up on March 4, 2016 support one full scholarship worth $2,500. Platinum Sponsors support two scholarships for $5,000. Titanium Sponsors support three scholarships for $7,500, and President’s Club Sponsors support four scholarships for $10,000.
“Every single dollar of the sponsorship goes to scholarship funds,” Snow said.
