Awards & Recognition
The Abby Bacho Memorial Eagle Award and Abby’s Angels Foundation College Scholarships
Abby Bacho Memorial Eagle Award
May 23, 2014 was the last day of school for many Coweta County students. An exciting day for many and a day to recognize and reward students for their hard work and accomplishments.
This is the day Abby would have joined her friends as they close the chapter of elementary school. Her excitement and nervous energy visible from a mile away. Her sadness to be leaving the loving and supportive world she knew as her school and all of those who touched her life in the years spent at Newnan Crossing Elementary School. Aside from family and friends, NCES played a very big role in Abby’s life.
Annually, Abby’s Angels Foundation and the Bacho family, present a memorial/honorary award to a deserving fourth grade student. Using characteristics exemplary of Abby’s personality a student is chosen by the fourth grade faculty.
