Betty Stone Weatherly Memorial Scholarship Fund
On May 22, 2019, Athens Christian School lost our longest serving faculty member, Mrs. Betty Stone Weatherly. Mrs. Weatherly touched the lives of thousands of students and families over the course of her 47 years of service here at ACS.
Miss Betty Stone came to ACS in 1971 to teach Math, and that she did so until the last week of January, 2019, when she was diagnosed with leukemia. She battled that insidious disease at Northside Hospital, and with God's healing Hand, she had gone into remission and was scheduled to go home just two days before her death. Then, quite unexpectedly, Mrs. Weatherly suffered a traumatic brain bleed which immediately took her life. While Heaven is rejoicing, we are acutely aware of our own personal loss.
Mrs. Weatherly's family has established the Betty Stone Weatherly Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor her life in a meaningful, beneficial way. They have established this scholarship as a matching-gift opportunity which will double your gift and have twice the impact on qualified existing and future ACS students, with the following purposes:
- to honor ACS for its educational ministry through the years and for providing Miss Betty the opportunity and Christian environment to teach you and your children;
- to provide a financial benefit for qualifying students and families like yours; and
- to give glory to a very gracious God who gifted Mrs. Weatherly with the genuine love of teaching, her natural loving kindness toward her students, her wonderful mathematical mind, and her deep love for Jesus.
It is very likely that Mrs. Weatherly taught you, your children, or even your grandchildren over the course of her 47 years at ACS.
What a tremendous way to express your gratitude for the countless hours Mrs. Weatherly spent teaching us so many things about God and life, besides just Math.
