The Georgia Association of Elementary School Principals (GAESP) recently selected the Georgia Club Foundation as a 2010 recipient of the GAESP Educational Patron Award.
The Georgia Club Foundation was one of four organizations statewide to receive the honor.
Recipients of the award are eligible to compete for the Outstanding Patron Award that will be decided later this year.
Bethlehem Elementary School principal Marisa Grant nominated the Georgia Club Foundation for the award based on their continued support of Barrow County Schools including a $1,000 grant to Bethlehem Elementary to help fund supplemental service, such as tutoring, at the school.
The Georgia Club Foundation’s mission is to serve the unmet educational, spiritual and basic human needs of persons primarily within the surrounding counties of Barrow, Oconee, and Clarke and The Georgia Club community.
Since its inception, over 20 local organizations and thousands of individuals have been served through donations and volunteer support. To find out more about the Foundation’s activity in the community or to make a financial contribution, visit www.TheGeorigaClubFoundation.com.
