Ila Elem. presents 2021 scholarships

Ila Elementary School recently presented its annual “Grand Gator Scholarship Awards” to seniors Ella Chancey, Hayley Daniels, Macy Mullis, Mason Wall and Teresa Vu. Each received a $1,000 scholarship awarded at the Madison County High School Honor’s Night. Chancey will attend UNC Charlotte to continue her softball career and study sports exercise. Daneils will attend the University of North Georgia/Oconee Campus in the fall and transfer to UGA to earn a career in computer science or entomology. Mullis, who is also MCHS salutatorian, will study at Gulf Coast University and swim for the university team while studying biology to pursue a doctoral degree in orthopedic surgery. Wall will travel to Kansas to continue his studies and his love for agriculture at Butler Community College. He will continue as a livestock judge studying business agriculture. Vu is the MCHS valedictorian and is on her way to Savannah to pursue her love of art animation at the art and graphic design college. “These Gators submitted outstanding applications, as well as achieved in many areas academically, in the community and personally,” said teachers. “Ila faculty, staff and friends want to commend all of our graduating MCHS seniors and wish them the very best. Thank you to all the individuals who contributed, for without you, this would not have been possible for our graduating Gators! Thank you, especially to those who contribute year after year to make this program a continued success.” Those interested in contributing to future scholarship awards can contact Kam Carmichael-Bennett at 706-789-3445.
