Pickens Scholars, modeled after the successful Cherokee Scholars program, has raised more than $80,000 for Pickens County students attending Reinhardt University since its beginning in 2017. With support from local Pickens County businesses and residents, students from Pickens County can attend Reinhardt University and receive scholarship dollars ranging from $500-$2,000 per semester for four years.
Amberle Godfrey, a Reinhardt student and leader in Pickens County, has chaired the Pickens Scholars Committee for two years. As a student, Godfrey sees what a gem Reinhardt is for Pickens County residents. "“It is so exciting to see this program grow for our students in Pickens County. We can never go wrong with investing in education."
Each spring, Reinhardt University brings a "Party for a Cause" to downtown Jasper for the annual Shamrock Stroll .5K. After the quick stroll through downtown, everyone gathers for live music and fun, all while raising scholarship dollars for Pickens County students.
Registration for the Shamrock Stroll is open!
Party for a Cause
Take part in a world class .5K road race that starts at the Board of Education building and finishes at S. Main and Spring streets. That’s right. We are running this short course, because any further is just too far! All proceeds from the .5K will support Pickens County students attending Reinhardt University.
There’s More at the Post Race Party!
The Shamrock Stroll .5K will include a post-race party that includes fun activities for the whole family. Live music will keep runners moving and grooving. Coca Cola and Reformation brews will address any rehydration issues. A variety of food trucks will be serving up food.
