Former Student Finds Success with State Farm Scholarship at Georgia State’s Perimeter College
Keyanna Johnson, a 2017 Southwest DeKalb High School graduate, is graduating from Georgia State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science, thanks in large part to a State Farm scholarship at the university’s Perimeter College.
Johnson is one of Perimeter College’s first State Farm Scholars. Four years ago, a group of 40 high school seniors from low-income backgrounds received the State Farm Scholarship at Georgia State’s Perimeter College, including Johnson.
The scholarship is part of Georgia State’s Learning, Income and Family Transformation (LIFT) program, which the State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company helped fund with a $14.5 million gift to Georgia State.
