American Proteins Donates Scholarship to ATC Foundation

January 23, 2011 - Forsyth County business and civic leader, Tommy Bagwell and his wife, Chantal, established the $500,000 Bagwell Family Scholarship Endowment to provide scholarships for students attending technical colleges located near their family business locations. The family business, American Proteins, Inc., currently has three locations, including one in Cuthbert, GA. Scholarship recipients are chosen using the following criteria: financial need, proximity to the company’s operation sites and the likelihood of their success. “We want to help as many students as we can to come to college, especially those living in our rural areas,” said Dr. Parker. “This scholarship will give students a chance to achieve their educational goals and become successful members of the workforce. For that, we are grateful to American Proteins and the Bagwell family.”
