Welcome to the Griggs Education Foundation

"To provide educational support and resources to high achieving students of all ages pursuing academic excellence in Houston County and the surrounding areas."


The Griggs Education Foundation, Incorporated was founded in November 2012 by siblings Dr. James Griggs and Cassandra Griggs-Frierson, M.Ed. The siblings wanted a way to honor their parents and therefore established the Sandra Griggs Nursing and Allied Health Scholarship and the Willie Griggs Memorial Scholarship.

In May 2013 James and Cassandra decided to expand the scope of the Foundation to include supporting students in Houston County and the surrounding areas. Both James and Cassandra are passionate about education and wanted to provide students with the opportunity to pursue their academic pursuits.

The Griggs Education Foundation offers merit-based scholarships to a diverse group of applicants. The goal of the Foundation is to provide students with the opportunity to participate in programs that will empower them to be successful in the future.
