Celebrating 25 years of Georgia’s Hope Scholarship success

CSRA News

The Georgia Lottery continues to bring in big money for education in the peach state.

That’s what the President and CEO of the Georgia Lottery was doing Thursday at the Exchange Club.

Gretchen Corbin spoke about the lottery’s 25 years of success.

She says the lottery has raised nearly $20-billion dollars of revenue for Hope and the pre-k program and says those programs have helped Georgia students achieve more than ever before.

“The younger you can start, the better, right?  And the more education that you can receive, the better.  So Hope and Pre-K we find in Georgia is incredibly important to student success,” says Corbin.

Corbin says over the 25 years of the lottery, nearly 2 million students have received the Hope scholarship.
