About the Scholarship

Georgia (Wilt) Roads was born in 1919 and graduated from North Robinson High School in 1937. Through Georgia and her husband Kermit's hard work and saving money, her great-nieces were able to establish this scholarship in her memory. Georgia is proof that one does not need a four-year college degree to be successful in life. She was an outgoing and fun individual that one could easily laugh with while sharing stories. She was adventurous, positive and didn't regret her life decisions.
