Did you know that Grandmont Community Association (GCA) has been awarding scholarships to our high school graduates since 1997? Powerhouse Grandmont Community has given 41 graduates a scholarship. The scholarship started with the proceeds from the Grandmont Community Association Art and Crafts Fair. Part of our vision is the enhancement of the life of our community. So, the best way to start is to enhance the education of our youth by awarding scholarships. The GCA Scholarship encourages education and higher learning. It rewards the high school graduates for their achievement and positive effort as to bring about positive change. We need this scholarship in order to ensure that the brightest minds get the most education they can regardless of their circumstances. In the past, some of our honorees came from humble upbringings and needed the scholarship for college tuition or technical training costs. This scholarship has helped level the playing field of education and made our honoree’s dream a possibility.

*Annie Janusch, *Talia Tyree, *Mary Neal, *Constance Smith, *ZaQorae Brown-Hopkins, *Marcella Cherese Harris, *Thomas Woodhouse, *Annice Bosley, *Steven Tucker, *Mike Morris, *Danielle Jackson, *Sahniqua Rowan, *Annette Burks, *De’Angela Cooper, *Aesha Rashid, *Kenata O.
