A DAY Receives $3,000 Donation from Georgia Power
Rod Drake, area manager for Georgia Power, presents a $3,000 check to Dr. J. Thomas Isherwood, Reinhardt president, and Dale Scarlett Morrissey ’76 ’99, director of fund raising campaigns and church relations. The goal for this year’s A DAY campaign is $100,000, and currently $61,315 has been raised toward this goal.
“Reinhardt appreciates the support from businesses like Georgia Power,” said Morrissey. “This allows students to benefit with scholarships from the monies raised. Without these types of donations and support it would not be possible for many of our students to continue their educational endeavors. The satisfaction is knowing that you have helped a student with their educational goal.”
A DAY Background
Created in 1988, the A DAY for Reinhardt campaign is an annual effort to provide support for Cherokee County students attending Reinhardt University. A DAY helps to fund the University’s Cherokee County Grant Program. This grant gives eligible students the opportunity to receive as much as $8,000 during their four years at the University. Since A DAY’s inception, more than $3 million in Cherokee County grants have been awarded to local deserving students. For more information about A DAY, visit www.reinhardt.edu/advancement
