This scholarship was created to honor the life of Abbie Lorene DeLoach (February 2, 1994-April 22, 2015). The scholarship was established in 2018 by her father Jimmy DeLoach '82 BSED through the Abbie DeLoach Foundation.
Abbie was dearly loved by all those who knew her. A graduate of Savannah Christian Preparatory School in 2012, Abbie was an excellent student and athlete. During her tenure in high school, she lettered in basketball, volleyball, and track. While her athletic prowess was strong, it was her leadership on the court and as part of the team that made her outstanding. Dedicated to succeeding in all that she did, Abbie believed in making those around her believe in themselves. This work ethic continued as Abbie went off to college at Georgia Southern University where she was in the nursing program.
A devoted student and friend, she excelled in her calling as a nurse. Not only did her love of learning further her studies, it was also her love of the Lord that deepened her satisfaction of serving others. The Abbie DeLoach Foundation continues the good work Abbie started, partnering with organizations closest to her heart to give scholarships and support world-wide missions. With permission, recipients of this award will be invited to an annual banquet held by the Abbie DeLoach Foundation in Savannah, Georgia.
