The Rockdale NAACP awarded scholarships to three graduates from each of the county’s high schools. The organization presented each student with a $1,000 check at the NAACP’s June 6 general meeting, which was held at Macedonia Baptist Church in Conyers.

The organization honored:

Adaisha Pringle, who graduated from Salem High School and plans to attend Kennesaw State College and become a pediatrician.

Dajalyn Collins, a Rockdale High School graduate who plans to major in business at Indiana University

Lashae Williams, a Heritage High School graduate who plans to study criminal justice at Gordon State College.

The students were required to write an essay, provide transcripts of their grades and recommendation letters from. The NAACP committee members who selected the winners also based their decision on the financial need of the students.

“We are extremely pleased to honor these students. This is one way that we can show our support for the hard work that they’ve put in,” said Ailene Eatman, who chaired this year’s Freedom Fund Banquet, which raises money for the scholarships. “It’s a way for us to give back to the community and help in a way that will be meaningful to their education and encourage them to succeed.”
