Area students earn top scholarships

  • Follow Education

Three area students have been awarded scholarships.

Incoming University of Georgia freshman Bradleigh Carpenter, the daughter of Marc and Maria Carpenter, was awarded the One UGA Scholarship, which provides $1,500 a year in addition to the HOPE scholarship.

The scholarship is given to academically outstanding students who will contribute to the diversity of the freshman class, with preference given to students who are the first in their families to attend college.

Carpenter is a graduate of Greenbrier High School.

Anna Hadsell, also an incoming UGA freshman, was among 18 incoming freshmen awarded the University of Georgia’s Baldwin Scholarship. Each student receives $2,000 in addition to the HOPE scholarship.

The scholarship honors Abraham Baldwin, the school’s first president.

Hadsell is the daughter of Michael and Pamela Hadsell and a graduate of John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School.

Paine College business senior Arthur Williams was a 2012 recipient of the $1,000 National Black McDonald’s Operators Association scholarship, an award given out by franchise operators to local students.

Christine Crawford, who owns or operates seven McDonald’s franchises, attributed Williams’ selection to his character and business skills.

Williams is the only employee from any of Crawford’s franchises to be awarded the scholarship.
