High School Graduate Awarded Tiny House Scholarship

Eatonton, GA – July 30, 2017: The founders of the United Tiny House Association and the Georgia Tiny House Festival®, John & Fin Kernohan, are pleased to announce high school graduate, Sara Beck, is the recipient of this year’s $1000.00 Tiny House Scholarship. (Sara is a 2017 Graduate of Gatewood Schools.)

Sara surpassed all other applicants both scholastically and in community service.

Each applicant was required to complete the 6-page Tiny House Scholarship Application, provide a copy of their high school transcript, include Letters of Recommendation, provide multiple references, submit both SAT & ACT scores, provide proof of college enrollment/acceptance, and include a written essay.

Sara’s written essay, “How I Intend to Support the Tiny House Movement in the Next Four Years”, shared Sara’s goals and vision of both living tiny during her dormitory life while in college and in being an example to others in how to have a more minimalist lifestyle.

Sara is now enrolled at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, Georgia.

Announced in December 2016, the Tiny House Scholarship was founded, and endowed, by The Kernohans, and their for-charity Tiny House Festivals, to recognize and support college-bound public, home-school, and private high school graduates in recognition of their proven track record of scholastic achievement, documented community service, and for their interest & support of the tiny house movement. (Note: John sat on the Homeschool Scholarship Board and was the founder of the Christian Homeschool Family Fun Fests so to help financially support college-bound homeschool students. The Tiny House Scholarship is an extension of The Kernohans’ desire to support of the continuing education of students.)
