Mount de Sales Academy students Ava Lauer (10th), daughter of Ms. Holly Smith; Justin Lucas (11th), son of Mrs. Detra Lucas; and Coleman Roberts (12th), son of Ms. Juanita Bryant, have been awarded a BP-GOAL Scholarship for the 2017-2018 school year.

The BP-GOAL Scholarship award amounts are based on the tuition rate at the student’s chosen private school and his or her family’s demonstrated need. BP-GOAL Scholars must reapply each year for the continuation of these awards, which if awarded over the next four years could result in a cumulative total of $863,300 being awarded to all scholarship recipients. To be eligible to apply, applicants had to be enrolled in a Georgia public school, have income no more than 2 times the poverty guideline and have been accepted and sponsored by a qualified Georgia private school.

Lisa Kelly, President of Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program said, “The BP-GOAL Scholars Fund exemplifies the very best this program can achieve. The valuable contributions by BP are having an increasingly positive impact on families throughout Georgia. Students are achieving remarkable success in graduating from rigorous college preparatory schools, and then continuing their education in universities.  Another remarkable reason for these excellent outcomes is the interest and involvement by the BP Team in following the well-being and success of each student recipient. This collaborative approach to providing greater opportunities for access to learning is a winning formula.  In addition, the student recipients are aware and appreciative of the fact they have the BP-GOAL team on their side!”

Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, Inc. is the state’s largest student scholarship organization, having awarded 25,652 scholarships totaling $94.1 million since 2008.
