On Thursday, May 30, the Coastal Georgia Foundation took about 35 downtown Brunswick stakeholders (business owners, developers, residents and public officials) on a full-day field trip to Macon, Ga. where the group heard from community leaders about the planning and execution of Macon’s successful revitalization effort. Some of the key points from Macon included 1) their focus on attracting residents downtown, 2) their collaborative work to achieve a unified vision for the downtown area and 3) thinking big but working in a clearly defined area (one block at a time) with smaller, achievable successes.
The Coastal Georgia Foundation awarded the Halsey Family Scholarship this past Tuesday to two very deserving graduating seniors from Camden County High School, Autumn Coughlin and Bryce Sawyer. The scholarship was established by Jack and Sandy Halsey and recognizes students from Camden County pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in either a Biological or Physical Sciences field or pursuing the Music or Music Education field. The $4,000-per-year award is in recognition of the significant influence that both science and music education and research had on both of the Halseys’ lives.
On May 9, Stephan Young graduated from the University of West Georgia, becoming the first Correll Scholar to do so in the program’s history. Founded in 2015 by A.D “Pete” and Ada Lee Correll, the Correll Scholars Program provides scholarships to talented Glynn County high school graduates who are members of the Elizabeth F. Correll Teen Center and are pursuing a post-secondary degree through one of Georgia’s public academic or technical colleges. The scholarship is managed by the Coastal Georgia Foundation.
