Hudson Johnson of David Emanuel Academy and Cheyenne Willis of Emanuel County Institute were recently awarded the Chad Ellison Scholarship. The $500 scholarship is awarded to a senior at David Emanuel Academy and Emanuel County Institute annually.
The individual who receives the scholarship must be a person of strong character along with other criteria that must be met including a GPA of 2.5 or more. A panel of five review the applications and make a final selection.
Funds for the scholarship are raised through fund raisers and donations in memory of Chad Ellison who was highly thought of in the community for his acts of kindness, athletics and well mannered behavior.
Johnson is currently attending Ogeechee Technical College. He is the son of Mitchell and Carol Johnson of Garfield.
Willis is attending East Georgia College. She is the daughter of Jim and Teresa Zipperer of Twin City.
