Thomas G. Harris Scholarship
Thomas G. Harris Scholarship
Posted on 08/31/2010
Melissa Lolley, Jessica Baker and Judson Baker, 2010 graduates of Armuchee High School, have been chosen as recipients of the fourth annual Thomas G. Harris Scholarship. The scholarship is a four-year award providing room and board for a student who is attending a Georgia college on the HOPE Scholarship. Traditionally, two Armuchee students are selected each school year; however, this year the Thomas G. Harris Scholarship Program graciously honored three applicants. 

Thomas G. Harris, for whom the scholarship is named, taught math and coached basketball during his 41-year career at Armuchee High School. Highly respected in his ability to teach math, Mr. Harris’ roles extended beyond coaching and teaching. He became assistant principal in 1947 and also led the development of programs, activities, and enduring traditions. Thomas G. Harris’ legacy continues to have a positive impact on Armuchee graduates.
