Representatives from 26 schools pose with staff at Piedmont Church to celebrate the donation of more than $15,000 from proceeds of the 2015 Christmas at Piedmont event held in December.

Piedmont Church passed out more than $15,000, to local schools and through scholarships from proceeds of their annual Christmas at Piedmont event.

Principals from local schools, Piedmont Church members and sponsors were on hand Tuesday, February 3, 2016 to give back to the northeast Cobb community. “We just love to support our schools, they are such an important part of our community.” said Ike Reighard, Senior Pastor of Piedmont Church.

With the help from presenting sponsor, Superior Plumbing, 26 schools received donations and seven $500 scholarships were named after some great families who have made a huge impact in our community to Kell and Sprayberry High Schools. “My husband Roy and I are honored and humbled to have a scholarship named for us at Sprayberry high school.” said Barbara Stiglich, Facilities Coordinator at Piedmont Church. “We could never have imagined all the blessings we have received by simply serving in the community, we’ve enjoyed it every step of the way.”

A new scholarship was created this year named the Lester E. Crowell, Jr., Three-13 Salon, Spa & Boutique Cosmetology Scholarship for Sprayberry high school.
