Second Annual Leaders & Legends Ball a Success!
On Saturday, February 8, 2014, the Cobb Schools Foundation hosted the 2nd Annual Leaders & Legends Ball at the Hilton Marietta Conference Center! This black tie celebration included dinner, dancing, fabulous entertainment, silent auction and awards honoring outstanding alumni and community leaders who have made an impact on Cobb County School District.
We were excited to have Kermit Keenum, Past-Superintendent for Cobb County School District as our Honorary Chairman for this annual event as we honored outstanding alumni and community leaders who support our schools.
Our 2014 honorees included: Betty Gray, Judge Mary Staley-Clark, US Senator Johnny Isakson, Earl Smith, Georgia State Senator Lindsey Tippins, along with The Brumby Family and The Kell Family.
In August 2013, Cobb County Schools opened our doors to over 107,000 students in 116 schools. Through our 2nd Annual Leaders & Legends Ball we
have supported the following programs:
• Academic Scholarships for Students – We awarded 2 - $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors at each of our 16 high schools in Cobb County School District annually.
• Kids First! –This funded scholarships for students in-need to enroll in the Cobb County School District’s After School Program for tutoring and education enrichment.
• Educational IMPACT Grants – Grants to teachers that allowed for implementation of creative and innovative educational programs in the classroom that would otherwise have gone unfunded.
• And so much more to benefit our schools!
