Two Master of Public Administration first-year students, Michelle LeBlanc and Tommy Valentine, have been awarded the Harold F. Holtz, Jr. Master of Public Administration Scholarship from the Georgia City-County Management Association (GCCMA). The Holtz Scholarship carries a stipend of up to $1,500 to aid students who are pursuing careers in local government. The Association has been a long-time supporter of outstanding professional education for public service at the local level, and the Georgia MPA program has consistently attracted many students with serious interests in local management.
