Each year, Southland Academy is honored to participate in the John and Betty Pope Citizenship Essay Contest.  The scholarship was created in 1997 with the goal to promote citizenship and patriotism among high school students in Americus, Georgia. This year, the theme for the essay was Patriotism in the United States. A Southland Academy committee chose the best papers from the entire class and submitted them to an outside independent committee where the essays were evaluated and ranked from 1st place to honorable mention.  Below are the names of the recipients for the Pope Scholarship Essay winners: 1st Place – Josh McKie, 2nd Place – Morgan Jones, 3rd Place – Billy Calcutt; Honorable Mention:  Jeremy Ledger, Louise Quillope, Zayd Hasnain, Ashley Ansley, and Mary Martin Shealy.
