Five Marietta Middle School students participated in a signing ceremony for the Georgia REACH (Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen) scholarship program on Oct. 25.

Scholars Christine Baker, Christopher Hernandez, Odalis Marcial, Naidellin Marquez Cordero and Joanna Zarco Lorenzo will each receive a $10,000 scholarship upon completion of the program and graduation from Marietta High School. This scholarship will be matched by Georgia HOPE-eligible post-secondary institutions.

The Marietta Mentoring for Leadership program facilitates the program and matches each student with a community member to mentor them through high school. Sponsors East West Bank, The Marietta Schools Foundation, Zaxby’s and Mr. & Mrs. Jim Morris, retired Cobb County Judge, all supported the students with a financial gift matched by the REACH program.

Representative Sam Teasley, Associate Superintendent Dr. Belinda Walters-Brazile and Marietta Middle School Principal Dr. Dayton Hibbs all offered words of encouragement to the students and their families.
