Thomas G. Harris Scholarship Program

Thomas G. Harris Logo

Thomas G. Harris was a dedicated educator, coach and mentor at Armuchee High School whose disciplined commitment to excellence inspired students for over forty-one years. The Thomas G. Harris Scholarship Program was created in 2007 to honor him and continue his impact on Armuchee students into the future.  

To become eligible for a Thomas G. Harris Scholarship, a student must attend a Georgia college on the HOPE Scholarship and must remain HOPE eligible throughout his or her college career.  

The Thomas G. Harris Scholarship is intended to assist with the payment of room and board expenses that are not covered by other scholarship awards or grants. The T. G. Harris award amount may not exceed the annual published cost of room and board at the Georgia public college or university the student is attending, or, in the case of private universities, the published cost of room and board at North Georgia College and State University. The award amount is calculated as follows: total tuition, fees, and room & board less total awards and grants, including the Hope Scholarship, Pell Grant, and any other scholarships received. The T. G. Harris scholarships are available in these amounts, regardless of where the student is living. 

The scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need, high school academic achievement, personal character, likelihood of collegiate success and potential long-term individual contribution to the welfare of North Georgia communities.
