Dunwoody High Student Ashton Jordan Awarded Gates Millennium Scholarship

Congratulations to Dunwoody High School student Ashton Jordan! He is a recipient of the Gates Millennium Scholarship for outstanding achievement for the class of 2014.  

Each year The Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program selects 1,000 talented students each year to receive a good-through-graduation scholarship to use at any college or university of their choice.

This year was a very competitive one for the scholarship awards as over 52,000 scholarship applications were received by the Gates Foundation, the most in program history. 

The Gates Millennium Scholars (GMS) Program, funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, was established in 1999 to provide outstanding African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American, and Hispanic American students with an opportunity to complete an undergraduate college education in any discipline area of interest.
