$2,000 Scholarship

The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation Healthcare Scholarship was established in 2016 to recognize two students who plan to pursue a career in healthcare. Kim Atkins was a beloved and respected teacher in Rockdale County for many years and was even recognized as a Teacher of the Year. During her battle with breast cancer she and her family depended on the care and compassion of many healthcare professionals. We seek to honor her love for students and her healthcare team by awarding a $2,000 scholarship to two deserving seniors each year. In 2017, we seek to honor her love for students and her healthcare team by proudly awarding eight $2,000 scholarships to eight deserving seniors this year (four from Rockdale County and four from Newton County).

The Reason KCAF Exists

Kimberley Chance Atkins actively fulfilled many roles during her short time on earth. She was a daughter, a wife, a mother, a teacher and so much more. She displayed a level of generosity, love, and dedication few people get to experience. Kim was the kind of person you wanted to be around. The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation started as a way to preserve our memory of Kim.
