The Coweta Community Foundation is extending its reach into local high schools for the third year.
The organization is conducting a search for the best and brightest students in Coweta County to promote service and community where it all begins. CCF partners with public, private and home school high school programs that serve Coweta County residents to attract talented and diverse freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors who are service minded and willing to give back.
CCF will offer mentorship and scholarship opportunities to the individuals selected to serve on the High School Community Service Team.. We recognize that great, innovative ideas will result from this partnership, and we can all benefit from that. We hope these same members become the future board members and committee chairs in the Foundation one day.
