Robinson Elementary School and a student from Dawson County High School were awarded scholarships for demonstrating how they stay active, mentally and physically, within the community.
Kroger Atlanta Division donated a total of $11,500 to six North Georgia graduating high school seniors and four elementary and middle schools that earned the grocer’s Earning Plus Learning rewards.
Senior Jessica Abe and the faculty, staff and students of Robinson Elementary were each given $1,000.
Earning Plus Learning entries were sent in the form of scrapbooks, photos, videos, essays and newspaper clippings.
All entries were reviewed by a panel of judges comprised of community leaders and the Kroger Community Involvement Team.
The program has given millions of dollars to schools and students in the Atlanta Division area throughout the years.
“Our teachers, principals, staff and students have a history of continued excellence, and they deserve a reward for all of their hard work,” said Glynn Jenkins, director of communications for Kroger’s Atlanta Division.
