Project GRAD Atlanta continues to make college a reality for students. As a College Access and Success Manager, I understand that "College Changes Lives"! Kudos to Project GRAD Atlanta for providing millions of dollars in scholarships to the students of the Atlanta Public Schools!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more funding opportunities in order for the organization to provide even more services and scholarships to deserving students.

As a College Readiness professional I can firmly say that Project GRAD Atlanta is a quality player and leader in the work of College Readiness, College Access and student retention. To date Project GRAD Atlanta has awarded over 2,250 scholars with the George W. Brumley Memorial Project GRAD Scholarship.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

expand to the entire school district and more districts across Georgia to help ensure that more students are prepared for post-secondary options.
