Governor Nathan Deal announces a new needs-based college scholarship program, to provide the opportunity for college to all Georgians.
The REACH Scholarship's first corporate sponsor is AT&T, which donated $250,000 to the fund.
REACH scholars will be selected in middle school, and must commit to keeping a certain grade average, staying drug and crime free, and meet with a volunteer mentor until high school graduation.
The REACH Scholarship is part of Governor Deal's "Complete College Georgia" initiative.
