1959 Graduating Classes of Ballard-Hudson, Lanier and Miller High Schools Endowed Scholarship

Awards are made annually to students pursuing a degree at Middle Georgia State University and who graduated from Bibb County’s Central High School or Rutland High School. The fund was established by members of the classes of 1959 of Ballard-Hudson, Lanier and Miller high schools, the legacy schools of Central and Rutland. Kept segregated by race and gender in the 1950s, all three classes came together for the first time in 2009 for a single 50th anniversary class reunion. In commemoration and celebration of that milestone occasion, this scholarship was established, intended to leave a lasting social and financial legacy to future generations of Bibb County students.
