Briana, a sixth grade student at Dodgen MS, learned recently that she was selected to receive a scholarship in the amount of $500. She applied for the scholarship via the Education GO Get It program. Briana is the only middle school student in Cobb County to receive such an award. You may recall that Dodgen MS was the first middle school in Georgia to house a GO Center. The GO Center was initiated by our PTSA under the leadership of President, Mary Winther. It is located in our media center. Ms. Winther sought a mini-grant offered by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia which ultimately provided the resources for our GO Center at Dodgen MS. The ribbon cutting for our center took place on October 12, 2005. GO Centers were originated with the goal of improving Georgia's high school graduation rate. Congratulations to Briana for being one of the first middle school students in Georgia to have already earned a scholarship for college.
