On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Career Academy faculty and staff, we are proud to recognize the 2015 Career Academy Foundation Scholarship recipients. The students went through a competitive process to receive the award. Students who attended the Career Academy at least two semester during their high school years were eligible to apply for the scholarships which can be used at any accredited institution in the country. The Career Academy Foundation has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships the past four years. The mission of the Career Academy is to ensure a viable 21st century workforce for Glynn County. The foundation is supported by the Glynn County Business community and is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit and also a United Way Agency. The Career Academy consists of three partners: Coastal Pines Technical College, Glynn County Board of Education and the Glynn County Business Community. Dr. Greg Aloia, President of the College of Coastal Georgia, was the featured speaker for the luncheon. The food was prepared by Chef Lee Cranz and his culinary students.
