By: Premier Academy
For over 40 years, Premier Academy has provided the educational foundation for more than 25,000 children in metro-Atlanta and has removed barriers to quality education for thousands of at-risk children while strengthening their families and the community. To date, they have raised over $65k in scholarships for at-risk youth. Johnny Brown, Kroger Customer Service Manager - Atlanta Division states, "To be able to give back to our youth - who are the future - is phenomenal. Anybody who has watched the news knows that our education is in serious peril due to reduced funding, so anything we can do to help further their processes is great." Darroll Mitchell of Georgia Power, a continued sponsor, agrees and is committed to the education of early learners and states, "Ensuring children are in a quality learning environment is key to their long-term educational success. Premier Academy is known for its national and local accreditation status and meets the rigorous demands for quality standards. Georgia Power has provided support for educational initiatives, and Mr. Mitchell has aligned his community efforts with the vision of Georgia Power.
This annual golf tournament provides scholarships each year to offset tuition fees for low-income and at-risk families. To purchase individual or group tickets, please contact Cindra Taylor @ 404-366- 3700.
