Cuthbert division manager, Brandon Kyzar and human resources manager, Jimmy Rice, presented ATC president, Dr. Anthony Parker, with the scholarship money.

Forsyth County business and civic leader Tommy Bagwell and his wife, Chantal, established the Bagwell Family Scholarship Endowment to provide scholarships for students attending technical colleges located near their family business sites. American Proteins Inc. has multiple locations including one in Cuthbert.

“We want to help as many students as we can come to college, especially those living in our rural areas,” said ATC President Dr. Anthony Parker. “This scholarship will give students a chance to achieve their educational goals and become successful members of the workforce.”

Bagwell Scholarship recipients are chosen using the following criteria: financial need, proximity to the company’s operation sites and the likelihood of their success.
