The A DAY campaign by Reinhardt University was powered up by a recent donation.

Georgia Power Co. contributed $4,000 to the program that funds support for Cherokee County students who choose to attend the local university. The check was presented by Area Manager Rod Drake, who is serving as chair of this year’s fundraising event.

“The goal for this year’s A DAY campaign is $110,000, and currently, $69,170 has been raised toward this goal,” said Barbara Manous, director of fundraising for the university. “Donations like this one will give us a greater opportunity to reach our goal by the end of the University’s fiscal year, June 30. We appreciate any and all donations to A DAY for Reinhardt because it helps our students continue in their educational endeavors at Reinhardt.”

Created in 1988, the A DAY for Reinhardt campaign is an annual effort to provide support for Cherokee County students attending Reinhardt University.

A DAY helps to fund the University’s Cherokee County Grant Program. This grant gives eligible students the opportunity to receive as much as $8,000 during their four years at the University.

Since A DAY’s inception, more than $3 million in Cherokee County grants have been awarded to local deserving students.
