New scholarship created at Clayton State

The Clayton State Retirees Association raised about $33,000 to create an annual scholarship for graduate students. The group has already awarded five $1,000 scholarships to graduate students.

Two retirees came up with the idea of creating an endowed scholarship in 2005, just before the college started its first graduate program, a master of arts in liberal studies.

The group is still raising money for the scholarship. Donations can be sent to: Clayton State University Foundation CSRA, 2000 Clayton State Blvd., Morrow, GA, 30260.
