Six local high school seniors were named Margie Hatfield Scholarship recipients at the East Cobb County Council of PTAs (ECCC PTA) general membership meeting held on April 23rd. The scholarship was established in 1989 to honor the dedication and years of service by Mrs. Hatfield to ECCC PTA. The scholarship recognizes and awards outstanding seniors who have demonstrated a commitment to service and citizenship in the genuine spirit of PTA. The winners, each of whom received a $1,000 cash award to be used to further their education, were selected on the basis of their applications, community service, personal essays and letters of recommendation. Funded by the local units of the ECCC PTA and donations from community members and community businesses, the scholarship program has awarded over $100,000 to students in the last 30 years. Mrs. Hatfield attended the scholarship presentation, held at Pope High School. All of the winners contribute to our community in significant ways through school and community activities. This year’s six scholarship winners contributed a combined total of 4,957 community service hours to the East Cobb community during their 4 years in high school. Congratulations to these outstanding seniors!
