ABAC Bainbridge recently recognized students who were awarded academic scholarships for the 2023-2024 year. The scholarships, awarded by both the ABAC Foundation and the Scholarship Foundation of Southwest Georgia, formerly the Bainbridge State College Foundation, totaled nearly $30,000. The Scholarship Foundation of Southwest Georgia is chaired by Bill Burke. Also on the Board of Directors are Bruce Mann, Dr. Michael Kirkland, Dr. Jack Leverett, Charlie Kirbo, Steffi Vines, Erwin Harrell, and Christina Reneau. Erin Lenz is the Foundation’s Coordinator.

Students who were recognized for their academic achievements came from seven southwest Georgia counties. Dr. Tracy Brundage, ABAC’s President, and Dr. Michael Kirkland, Executive Director of ABAC Bainbridge, offered their congratulations to the students and appreciation to the many donors in attendance. ABAC Bainbridge thanks both foundations for their generous support of all these talented students.
