Delta Community Awards HBCU Scholarship


In partnership with Atlanta radio station KISS 104.1, and in celebration of our 75th Anniversary, Delta Community will be awarding $7,500 in scholarships to students attending a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in Georgia. Throughout 2015, four scholarships worth $1,875 will be awarded.

High school senior Adam Turner received the first scholarship on March 31 at our Vinings branch. Adam plans to attend Morehouse College in Atlanta this fall and study biology.
