Who Can Apply: The Jim & Dee Snow Optimist Scholarship was established in 2013 by the Gainesville Evening Optimist Club to honor long-time educators, Jim and Dee Snow. Jim and Dee Snow spent their entire working lives as educators, devoting themselves to the children of Gainesville and Hall County. In their free time they were pivotal members of the Gainesville Evening Optimist Club whose motto is “bringing out the best in youth.” Their dedication to encouraging and helping young people is the inspiration for this scholarship. The Gainesville Evening Optimist Club hopes to assist young people who embody those same characteristics of service and scholarship in meeting their educational goals.
One $1,000 award is available to graduating seniors at Hall County or Gainesville City public high schools or to a GED recipient. Applicants must be planning to attend a Georgia public college or university.
Deadline: March 15, 2020
