The Glynn Academy (GA) Class of 1969 Scholarship, a component fund of The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation, awards an annual $2,500 scholarship to one deserving GA graduate - to honor GA Class of 1969 classmates no longer with them - “Gone, But Not Forgotten.”
The scholarship is designed to provide financial assistance to a graduating senior who did not meet the standards for the Georgia HOPE Scholarship, but otherwise demonstrated characteristics of a dedicated student. The goal is that with financial assistance during the first year of college, the awarded student will raise his or her GPA enough to qualify for the HOPE Scholarship by the end of the first semester of college.
This year’s 2022 GA Class of 1969 Scholarship recipient is Marisela Guerrero-Gomez, a first-generation college student who plans to attend The College of Coastal Georgia. During high school, Marisela completed multiple dual-enrollment, advanced, and honors courses while participating in GA’s Color Guard.
