YOUNG PROFESSIONALS CONNECTION AWARDS CONTINUING EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS TO LOCAL MILLENNIALS

Chamber Matters, September 2017

The Douglas County Chamber’s Young Professionals Connection (YPC) was pleased to award the recipients of the annual YPC Continuing Education Scholarship at the GreyStone Power Luncheon on August 15th. Recipients were Mahdi Al-Husseini with TEDx Douglasville, and Douglas County School System employee Abby Robbins, a teacher at Factory Shoals Elementary School. Scholarship recipient Abby Robbins who will use this scholarship towards her Masters in Early Childhood Education commented, “from the time I was a child to present day, I have watched this community grow and change in more ways than one, and I am passionate about it remaining a positive community to be a part of.” Al-Husseini spoke of his intentions with the scholarship saying, “this scholarship will allow me to continue my focus on local volunteer efforts while simultaneously completing studies in biomedical engineering and public policy at Georgia Tech, with an ultimate goal of pursuing a career with the United States Army.” Scholarships for 2018 will be available in January. To learn more about YPC and its functions, please contact Sara Ray at 770.942.5022 or visit www.douglascountygeorgia.com.
