BENEFITING: GEORGIA ART EDUCATION ASSOCIATION INC
EVENT DATE: Jul 04, 2013
We are running the 2013 Peachtree Road Race to raise funds for the Dr. Helen Fleming Stone NAHS Scholarship Fund. Ten years ago I raised $600 for the fund running my first Peachtree, and we hope to double that amount this year. If the $1200 goal is met, I plan to shave my beard to celebrate. If you'd like to see what's under that beard and - more importantly - support the scholarship, please consider making a donation.
Each year a $1000 college scholarship is awarded to a Georgia National Art Honor Society student member in memory of Dr. Helen Fleming Stone. During her forty-nine year career teaching high school art Dr. Stone raised over $60,000 to establish the fund. Her family and colleagues continue to build the scholarship’s principal with a goal of $100,000 to make the award self-perpetuating. The scholarship, based on a competitive portfolio review, is administered through the Georgia Art Education Association.
