New PTA Scholarship Opportunity

The JoAnn Taylor Scholarship Fund was created by the Tom Mathis Sr. Council, PTA to demonstrate the Council’s commitment to education and to provide a financial award for deserving high school seniors within the council’s boundaries. Emphasis will be placed on the citizenship and community/ school service records of the scholarship recipients, since this embodies the philosophy of the PTA. There will be one scholarship awarded to each of our 2017–2018 participating high schools: Allatoona High School, Harrison High School, Kennesaw Mountain High School, and North Cobb High School. The amount of each scholarship will be $750.00.

The following criteria will be used in the selection process: 1. Student or student’s parent(s) must be a current 2017–2018 member of their High School PTA. 2. Extracurricular activities, community involvement, service-oriented projects, and citizenship. 3. Honors and Awards from school and community.

All funds received from this scholarship must be used for continuing education. There is no limit to the number of students from each school that may apply. Applications must be received no later than Thursday, March 1, 2018 by 5pm.  Winners will be honored on March 20, 2018 during the Tom Mathis Sr. Council, PTA General Session at Acworth City Hall.  Submit any questions to:
