Eighth graders sign REACH scholarships
By Caitlin Boland

Andrea Cobb, Kayja Hatcher, Faith McNair, Xarea Primas and Antron Dixon sign the REACH contracts as their parents look on.
Five Warren County eighth graders signed a $10,000 scholarship Wednesday Oct. 4.
The Realizing Educational Achievement Can Happen (REACH) scholarship signing ceremony occurred at the Warren County Career Academy as Andrea Cobb, Antron Dixon, Kayja Hatcher, Faith McNair and Xarea Primas -- along with their parents -- signed the dotted line.
“Their teachers and principal are already proud of these students,” said Quamid Green, REACH coordinator and parent liaison. “We want them to continue what they’re already doing.”
The REACH scholarship is a needs-based scholarship that begins in eighth grade. The students will be paired with a mentor and academic coach throughout high school.
“In the event that they fall short in their studies, a coach will come and help them to get whatever they need to fill in the gaps as far as curriculum and help motivate them to do what they need to do,” Green said.
The scholars must maintain a 2.5 GPA, good attendance and good behavior throughout middle and high school. They will be assisted by the mentors who will meet with the students three to four times a month and academic coaches who will give them help when needed.
