Georgia United Foundation Awards $5,000 in Continuing Ed Scholarships to Georgia Educators

Georgia United Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Georgia United Credit Union in Duluth, Georgia, announces the inaugural recipients of the Frank Thach Scholarship for educators.

Financial assistance of $500 each is awarded to the following deserving Georgia educators who are pursuing advanced teaching or education degrees from an accredited university or college:

  • Antonio Green, a teacher at Crossroads Alternative School in Laurens County
  • Heather Lieberman, a Teacher at FLEX Academy in DeKalb County
  • Jaszmyn Green, a Teacher at Tara Elementary in Clarke County
  • Ira Andrews, the Principal at Lakeside High in DeKalb County
  • Kelsea Furbish, a Teacher at Denmark High in Forsyth County
  • Kelli Washington, a Teacher at Livingston Elementary in Newton County
  • Kimberly Maughon, a Teacher at Eastside High in Newton County
  • Shaelyn Sutton, a Teacher at Dug Gap Elementary in Whitfield County
  • Michelle Cole, a Teacher at Mt. Carmel Elementary in Henry County
  • Premalta Miller, a Teacher at New Hope Elementary in Henry County

Supporting education is one of the Foundation’s cornerstones, and this new scholarship program pays homage to the credit union’s roots because Georgia United Credit Union was founded in 1958 as the DeKalb County Teachers Federal Credit Union. Thach, the scholarship’s namesake, is the Vice Chairman of Georgia United Credit Union’s Board of Directors.

“As we introduce our latest initiative supporting educators in their pursuit of advanced degrees, we reaffirm our commitment to continuing education,” said Foundation Program Manager Haven Beavers. “Through these scholarships, we aim to foster excellence in teaching and enrich the learning experience for generations to come.”
