Georgia PTA Every Child. One Voice. - Mission Accomplished by Georgia PTA - Scholarships for our Children!
Our mission revolves around advocacy as it relates to making every child’s potential a reality. This is actually the basis for our Association’s very existence. Many children choose to pursue a form of higher education after high school graduation as a means to attain the goals that they have set for themselves.
We received applications representing schools within seven of our PTA districts from around the state. We are appreciative to all of the students that devoted the time necessary to complete the application process.
We are confident that they will all attain success as they embark upon the next chapter of their educational journey. It is my hope that they will all
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
