Who we are


The Elaine Bryan Foundation was established in 2010, after Dr. Bryan received the Atlanta Mayor Phoenix Award, the Judge Glenda Hatchett Mentorship Award for outstanding service in the field of education, and the Georgia School Counselor Association (GSCA) Counselor of the Year Award. Our belief is that all students can improve academically if supported by everyone in the learning environment. The curriculum should be flexible and all students should have access to computers. We believe in “The What What What Approach” - what you do with what you have determines what you become.™ As a Microsoft Education Partner, our main goal is to improve the academic and career success of students through private and public partnerships.
