Athens Ladies Civitans have awarded their 2017-2018 scholarship to Joshua Black, a Collaborative Education student at Athens State University. The Civitans have supported a scholarship at Athens State since 2010, and funding for the scholarship is raised, in part, through the Tour of Homes to be held on December 10.

Civitans originated in 1917 and serves “individual and community needs with an emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities.” Joshua, a full-time student, embodies the mission of Civitans. In his spare time, he works at Marshall Medical Center and performs with a gospel bluegrass group.
