Bria Mabry Selected as Rouse Foundation Scholarship Recipient

Central High School senior Bria Mabry was  awarded a $300 scholarship from the Rouse Foundation. Mrs. Deirdre Rouse personally  presented the scholarship along with the school principal, Mr. Jared Griffis. 

For more than 20 years Dr. Charles and Mrs. Deirdre Rouse have laid the groundwork for  what would later become The Rouse Foundation. The foundation strives to optimize health  outcomes in marginalized communities around the globe through education, early detection, prevention, and treatment. Dr. Rouse follows his mother’s creed, which is to give back to those  who have less. He believes heart disease doesn’t just devastate households, it devastates  generations, forcing families to face unimaginable choices between immediate needs and long term health care costs. By supporting individuals, like Bria Mabry, Dr. Rouse hopes to have a  huge impact on the world we live in and help who are stricken with heart disease. 

Bria will be attending Agnes Scott College in the fall on a volleyball scholarship and plans to earn her degree in biotechnology.
