Mary Paglia, Riverside Military Academy’s annual fund coordinator, was named the 2015 GOALTender of the Year for Georgia in September during the annual Georgia Greater Opportunities for Access to Learning Scholarship conference.
Representatives from more than 100 GOAL partner schools attended the conference held at the Wesleyan School, and Mary received the top award for her diligence and enthusiasm for the program.
Paglia is a Gainesville native who began working at Riverside Military Academy in 2012. She has continued to increase the school’s Georgia GOAL Scholarship donor participation each year, helping to fund more cadet scholarships for those with demonstrated need. Her husband, Marc Paglia, serves as athletic director for Riverside, and he has worked at the academy for more than 20 years.
Individual taxpayers, LLCs, partnerships and corporations can participate in the GOAL Scholarship program. Any Georgia residents are eligible to redirect their tax dollars to student scholarships at Riverside Military Academy. Learn more at http://www.goalscholarship.org/about_goal/.
