Mark Eister receives Hero Scholarship

Posted:

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Remington Youngblood, founder and president of Change 4 Georgia, a community service program dedicated to thanking soldiers for their service, presented Mark Eister, director of the Military Outreach Center at Perimeter College, with a check for $500 for the C4G Hero Scholarship for Student Veterans.

C4G has partnered with the college in order to assist the student veterans who are enrolled.

In addition to scholarship funds, they also provide school supplies and snacks for the student veterans.

When C4G was collecting food, clothing and personal items for veteran families, Eister collected and delivered a car load full of donations within three days from Vetbuds, a nonprofit organization where members with military service provide assistance to other veterans.

Eister is also a member of Vetbuds.

C4G has partnered with Vetbuds to double the amount of aid going toward veteran assistance.

Last year, C4G presented a $500 check to student veteran Chance Brown, who attends North Georgia College.

For more information regarding donations to the C4G Scholarship Program, contact change4georgia@gmail.com.

As Youngblood says, “It’s the least we can do.”
