Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide ongoing training and continuing education for our members, and to support education in our community. The AALA Gene Henson Scholarship, a 501(c)(3) organization, sponsors a Scholarship to be awarded to an outstanding senior enrolled in one of our local public high schools who is interested in attending an accredited higher learning institution.    Members of the Gene Henson Committee review scholarship submissions from students, interview candidates and select the scholarship recipient.    

How it Began 

The Gene Henson Scholarship Foundation was formed in 2004 in response to the chapter’s desire to provide secondary educational opportunities to well deserving students in metro Atlanta.The foundation is named after the AALA’s founding member, Gene Henson.The first scholarship was awarded to Andrei Ionescu in 2005.

Congratulations to the 2017 Gene Henson Scholarship Recipient!


Hello everyone! My name is Jackie Yalta and my goal in life is to be a good citizen of the United States and I believe this can be accomplished through education. I believe that education is the fundamental key to a child's success. Whether it’s in academics, athletics, or community service, my experiences create opportunities for me to learn lessons in order to impact my community and benefit my future. Graduating as an Honor Grad excelling in academics, community service, and leadership skills, I will be happily attending the Unversity of Georgia. As I  pursue a higher education, I will be considering in majoring in business, law, mathematics, criminology, etc. I hope to lead a legacy of kindness, inspiration, and good service to my peers, professors, and my community
2018 Gene Henson Scholarship information will be available soon!
