UNG receives $10K to use for scholarships

Blake House, vice president for marketing and member services at Sawnee EMC, hands Jason Pruitt, executive director of UNG Cumming Campus a $10,000 check to be used for student scholarships.

Sawnee Electric Membership Foundation (EMC) awarded the University of North Georgia (UNG) $10,000 for student scholarships.

The scholarships will be used to help high-achieving students who are not currently receiving HOPE Scholarships pay for college.

Last year, UNG awarded five scholarships of $2,000 each, which aided veterans enrolled at the Cumming Campus.

The mission of the Sawnee EMC is to assist in strengthening the communities served by Sawnee EMC by providing financial assistance to selected charitable organizations through the Foundation’s Operation Round Up program. These funds, along with monies from other organizations, allow donations to students, schools and various organizations located in parts of Cherokee, Dawson, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, and Lumpkin counties.

UNG's Cumming Campus opened in August 2012 with more than 500 students. The campus now serves nearly 1,000 students, offers basic core curriculum and general education courses, as well as master's degrees in business administration and teaching.
