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.
