The Robert Warde Chambers Scholarship

Upon his graduation from Brooks County High School in 2015, Zaquez Blankumsee was awarded the Robert Warde Chambers Scholarship.  This scholarship is given annually to graduating seniors in Brooks County to help alleviate the financial burden that college can bring.  Blankumsee went on to pursue a degree at Georgia Southern University and will graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Pre-Law Communication Studies.  After graduation, he plans to take part in an international flight attendant program and work toward applying to law school.  

“This scholarship has been a saving grace at times.  I definitely want you all to know how appreciative I am for it. I couldn’t have made it this far without [it].…thank you for this incredible experience and opportunity.”
