For the third year in a row, Amberle Godfrey will lead as chair of Reinhardt University’s Pickens Scholars program.
Godfrey has led the program dedicated to supporting Pickens County since its inception three years ago. Pickens Scholars works to provide opportunity for Reinhardt students residing in Pickens County. As a current non-traditional student at Reinhardt herself, Godfrey believes in the University’s mission and in the importance of education.
“Education opens the door to the future,” said Godfrey. “I feel it is important to help Pickens County residents become aware of the opportunity, that is so close by, for a quality education.”
As she advocates for Reinhardt students residing in Pickens County, she hopes to impart on her community the affordability of an education at Reinhardt University.
“I want to raise awareness of Reinhardt to Pickens County residents and help them understand that an education at RU is obtainable and affordable.”
Godfrey is an involved member of the Pickens County community, as she leads the Pickens Chamber of Commerce as president and CEO. She wants others to view involvement and support of Pickens Scholars as a valuable investment.
“An investment in the Pickens Scholars program is an investment in the future, an investment in our youth and an investment in our community.”
