Top 10 graduates received laptops from Thillen Education Foundation

Updated: Apr 29, 2023

At Greene County High School Honors Night on May 17, the Top Ten academic students received laptops and carrying cases. The laptops were originally used by professionals at Morris, Manning and Martin, LLP, a 250 lawyer law firm headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. They were donated to Thillen Education Foundation where they were refurbished and repurposed for the GCHS college bound students. The laptops are just one more way the community is supporting students who participate in the Career Coaching Program that is a partnership of Greene College & Career Academy and Thillen Education Foundation. Picutred are, from left, Zanobia Brown, Valedictorian, Kennedy League, Salutatorian, Ollie Wilder, Karina Rocha-Gonzalez, Arriona Brinson, Ty’Shionna Grimsley, Idania Padilla, Jonathan Paredes-Moreno, Kalen Crawford and Asia Allen.
