2022 RMS REACH Scholar Ceremonies

Catoosa County Public School inducts one Ringgold Middle School REACH GA Scholars

REACH is a state initiative to provide Georgia’s academically promising 8th grade students with the academic, social, and financial support to graduate from high school and college prepared for work.

REACH Scholars sign a contract agreeing to maintain good grades, uphold good behavior and attendance, meet with their assigned mentor twice a month, their academic coach once a month, and attend REACH activities throughout each school year until they complete high school. Their parents and guardians also sign a contract to support their Scholar’s educational pursuits. REACH Scholars who complete program requirements receive a $10,000 scholarship. The REACH Scholarship may be used at a University System of Georgia, Technical College System of Georgia, or eligible private post-secondary institution.

Catoosa County Schools Partnership Program Steering Committee oversees this program, provides mentors, and helps raise the $3,500 matching funds for each scholarship.

Superintendent Nix and the CCPS Board of Education congratulates Trinity Tallant for being selected as the Reach Scholarship Winner for 2022! 

Trinity Tallant: Trinity has earned several academic honors during her time at Ringgold Middle School. These include the highest GPA for ELA and Science in 6th grade, as well as all A’s in 6th and 7th grade. Trinity lives with her grandparents and states, she “looks up to (her) Papaw” and knows she can “go to both of them when she has a problem.” When she is not at school, she is involved with her church youth group and youth group field trips. She also participates in horsemanship camp in the summertime. Trinity would like to attend Savannah State University to study Forensic Science.

The Superintendent and the Board of Education would like to thank all of the wonderful sponsors for this opportunity for our CCPS students.
