Margie Hatfield Scholarship

DEADLINE Extended!

The ECCC PTA has elected to extend the deadline for application for the ECCC PTA Margie Hatfield Scholarship from March 31, 2021 to this Friday, April 2, 2021.  All applications must be postmarked by that date.
Each spring the East Cobb County Council (ECCC) of PTAs awards one $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior from each of the six ECCC high schools. The scholarship, known as the Margie Hatfield Scholarship, honors the dedication and years of service given by Mrs. Hatfield to the youth of our council. In recognition of her volunteer involvement, the Margie Hatfield Scholarship Fund awards deserving seniors who have made significant contributions to the community. 

Any graduating senior enrolling in a full-time course of study at any institute of higher learning may apply. Students, however, must be a member of your school’s PTSA and if awarded a scholarship, must use the funds for continuing education. 

We appreciate you making your eligible seniors aware of this opportunity!

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jolynn Hardizi and Tammy Andress, Scholarship Chairs at

Deadline extended to Friday, April 2, 2021!
