The Cobb EMC Community Foundation announced that Chattahoochee Technical College student Lydia Kumi, of Cobb County, has been awarded a $5,000 scholarship. Kumi, who is pursuing an Associate of Applied Science degree at Chattahoochee Tech, was one of 14 local students who each received a $5,000 scholarship. This scholarship can be applied to any accredited university, college or vocational-technical school.
“I am so grateful. I want to thank the Cobb EMC Community Foundation,” said Kumi. “I will be using this scholarship for my tuition. My goal is to get into the nursing program spring semester, graduate from Chattahoochee Tech, and then work as a Registered Nurse in any community health center in my county.” Kumi noted that her ultimate goal in nursing is to become a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM).
