Kathryn Tramonte, daughter of Georgia Power employee Tony Tramonte and a graduate of Starr’s Mill High School, was one of 22 high school students who received a Georgia Power scholarship at an awards ceremony at Georgia Power's corporate office in Atlanta.

Georgia Power President and CEO Mike Garrett presided over the ceremony and made the scholarship presentations.

"Since 1988, the Georgia Power Foundation has been helping students across Georgia realize their educational dreams through the Georgia Power Scholarship Program," said Garrett.

"I'm pleased to be able to present scholarships to these outstanding students who will one day be our leaders. I also take pride in the fact that, through this program, we're taking care of members of the Georgia Power family."

The Georgia Power Scholarship Program was created by former Georgia Power and Southern Company President and CEO Bill Dahlberg. This year, 22 scholarships were awarded, with 10 students receiving $3,500 and 12 students receiving $1,000.
The scholarship recipients were selected from among 178 students who competed in the program. To be considered for a scholarship, candidates had to submit an application and participate in a panel interview.

Tramonte will attend Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta this fall where she plans to pursue a degree in pre-medicine.
