Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation Awards $16,000 in Healthcare Scholarships

The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation Healthcare Scholarship was established in 2016 to recognize 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 Kim Atkins in her love for students and her healthcare team by awarding a $2,000 scholarship to eight deserving seniors each year. Scholarships are awarded to students from each traditional high school and career academy in Rockdale and Newton Counties.

Scholarship recipients from Rockdale County Public Schools are: Iyauanna Cheatham, Leilani Collantes, Elaina Mosely, Darren Stephens and Sariah Ward.
