State Represenative Bubber Epps and Mrs. Kathryn Epps met with four Wilkinson County middle-schoolers in Irwinton on Friday, September 30th and made them offers they didn’t refuse.

The four middle-schoolers each signed contracts promising to maintain a 2.5 GPA, good attendance and behavior. In exchange, each student will receive $2,500 per year for a total college scholarship of $10,000.

The scholarship provides opportunity for those hoping to further their education beyond highschool. 

Recipients from Wilkinson County Middle School are Aaliyah Curry, Maria Gonzalez, Tre'veon Myrick, and Alexis Pope.

The REACH scholarship was launched by Governor Nathan Deal in 2012 and has grown to 685 scholars in 69 school districts. About $6,750,000 in state taxpayer money has helped pay for the scholarships.
