Restoring the Breach, Inc., is committed to helping young people succeed academically. This includes ensuring that students have access to the financial resources they need to obtain a college education.
This year, the organization is once again offering its Brittainee Collins Scholarship for high school seniors and college students pursuing an associate's or bachelor's degree. Collins passed away in 2021 after a courageous battle with breast cancer, and the scholarship is a way to memorialize her service to the organization.
"Brittainee was an inaugural member of Restoring the Breach, Inc., committed to the success of the Statesboro-Bulloch youth," the organization shared. "We continue to honor her legacy through this scholarship."
Restoring the Breach will award the scholarship to one high school senior and one college student this year. The high school senior must be attending a school in the Bulloch County Area and entering college in the Fall. The college student must be attending an institution of higher learning in the Bulloch County area.
