Rockdale County Clerk of Superior and State Courts would like to recognize four Rockdale County high school graduates for winning the Janice Morris Scholarship for 2022. The Rockdale County Clerk of Superior and State Courts U.N.D.E.R.D.O.G.S Initiative was created for students to be awarded a monetary scholarship by preparing an essay explaining a time when they overcame adversity and their desire to pursue a higher education. Each student’s essay was scored based on a list of criteria that included Academic Goals, Barriers to Persistence, Organizational skills, and Writing Mechanics.
U.N.D.E.R.D.O.G.S. stands for Unwavering Neighbors Demonstrating Exceptional Resilience and Dominating Obstacles for Ground-Breaking Success
The four students were awarded $1000 Scholarships for demonstrating exceptional writing skills and have shown a strong promise for succeeding in college and beyond.
Winning Rockdale County High School recipients are:
Natavia White, who graduated from Heritage High School and was accepted into The Art Institute of Atlanta.
Katlynn Patton, who graduated from Rockdale County High School and was accepted into in the Pre-Nursing program at Georgia State University.
Nylah Ductan, who graduated from Rockdale Magnet School and has been accepted into Columbia University.
Iyanna Smith, who graduated from Salem High School and has been accepted into the University of West Georgia.

The awards were presented on May 31, 2022, at the Rockdale County Courthouse by Madam Clerk, Janice Morris and the U.N.D.E.R.D.O.G.S. task force team. This initiative will kick off again in August for the upcoming graduating high school class of 2023.
