2021 Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation Scholarships Awarded

The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation (KCAF) is dedicated to promoting early detection and education about breast cancer prevention, treatment options, and recovery. The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation healthcare scholarship was established in 2016 to recognize students who plan to pursue a career in healthcare. Scholarships were recently awarded to students from each traditional high school and career academy in Rockdale and Newton counties. Kim Atkins was a beloved and respected teacher in Rockdale County for many years and was even recognized as Teacher of the Year. During her battle with breast cancer, she and her family depended on the care and compassion of many healthcare professionals. This year, the Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation honored Kim’s love for students and her healthcare team by awarding nine $2,000 scholarships to deserving high school seniors. Join us in congratulating these phenomenal students and wish them well as they pursue their dreams!

The Reason KCAF Exists

Kimberley Chance Atkins actively fulfilled many roles during her short time on earth. She was a daughter, a wife, a mother, a teacher and so much more. She displayed a level of generosity, love, and dedication few people get to experience. Kim was the kind of person you wanted to be around. The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation started as a way to preserve our memory of Kim.
