Audra Nicole Oliver Memorial Scholarship The successful applicant will receive a $500 Scholarship amount that must be used to further his or her post-secondary education. The scholarship award will be presented during the senior honor's night at the high school which the recipient attends. The scholarship amount will be paid directly to the post-secondary institution once the recipient is enrolled. Audra Nicole Oliver, a resident of Fayette County who struggled with the Sickle Cell Anemia Disease from childhood, worked for the Fayette County School System until the critical nature of the disease forced her to quit her job. Audra was well loved by many members of the Fayette Community and Metropolitan Atlanta. Many prayed for her during the difficulties and complications of her illness. On February 3, 2002, Audra Nicole transitioned from this life. Many people who loved Audra and her family wanted to do something to memorialize her life because of the positive loving role model she was for others. The Association of Village PRIDE asked the Oliver Family for permission to start a scholarship fund in Audra's memory. Once permission was granted the organization went about soliciting donations to begin the Scholarship Fund. Although not an endowed scholarship at this point, the goal is to have this scholarship endowed so that every year scholarships can be awarded to worthy seniors from Fayette County.
