College Factory and Athens Step Up
Athens Step Up is an Athens local scholarship organization founded by Ms. Hattie Whitehead. The scholarship was an idea derived from the community and family in which Hattie Thomas Whitehead grew up- Athens, Georgia. Their purpose is to enable youth who have overcome obstacles achieve their greatness by providing scholarships and development resources. They presented their first scholarship in 2014 to 2 recipients and in 2015 raised that to 3 recipeints.
This past January 2016, Athens Step Up and the College Factory partnered to offer 5 scholarships to Clarke County School District graduating seniors.
At the College Factory, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to better their future, whether through a college education or career.
Our Program Coordinators work hard to ensure that the local community has access to our program and information relating to college & career planning. They plan numerous community events such as:
