The Kimberley Chance Atkins Foundation Healthcare Scholarship was established in 2016 to recognize
two students who plan to pursue a career in healthcare. Kim Atkins was a beloved and respected
teacher in Rockdale County for many years and was even recognized as a Teacher of the Year.
During her battle with breast cancer she and her family depended on the care and compassion of
many healthcare professionals. We seek to honor her love for students and her healthcare team by
awarding a $2,000 scholarship to two deserving seniors each year.
In 2018, we seek to honor her love for students and her healthcare team by proudly awarding eight
$2,000 scholarships to eight deserving seniors this year (four from Rockdale County and four from Newton County).
