Three students earned $500 scholarships presented by business partners in the charter academy program at the College and Career Academy.  Georgia Power Company, Oglethorpe Power Company and Floyd Medical Center are integral partners in the education program at the school and provide assistance with curriculum development and internship opportunities.  The three local business also joined with the College and Career Academy to recognize excellence by providing scholarships to deserving graduates.  The winners of the scholarships were: 
  • Georgia Power Scholarship - Cody Peoples, Armuchee High School
  • Oglethorpe Power Scholarship - Hector Cornejo, Model High School
  • Floyd Medical Center Scholarship - Ty'ya Frazier, Coosa High School 
Six students also earned $500 scholarships awarded by the Floyd County Schools College and Career Academy Foundation.  One award was presented in each of the six programs.  Foundation Scholarships presented were:
  • Cisco Networking - Jared Jordan, Model High School
  • Cosmetology - Hannah Hulsey, Pepperell High School
  • Criminal Justice - Patrick Peace, Pepperell High School
  • Graphic Communications - Jennifer Rutledge, Pepperell High School
  • Metal Technology - Chris Westgate, Coosa High School
  • Teacher Academy - Justin Hart, Coosa High School  
The College and Career Academy also recognized a large number of students earning industry certification, competition awards earned during the year and for participation in dual enrollment in college courses during high school.  Students will be able to use these experiences and certifications to give them an advantage when seeking employment or applying to colleges and technical programs.
