School Superintendent is Using His First Ever $10,000 Bonus to Pay For Students’ College Applications
Grant Rivera has worked as a superintendent of the Marietta School District in Georgia since 2016. Rivera is donating the bonus to theMarietta Schools Foundationso that it can help students who apply to colleges ahead of regular application deadlines.
Of the 500 high schoolers in the graduating class, Rivera estimates that 150 to 200 students will apply to college.
If there is any money leftover after his students have finished with their applications, then the funds will be used to finance college bus tours in Georgia.
