The 31st Annual Excellence Awards Ceremony is to honor the exceptional  students living in the Decatur Housing Authority's affordable housing communities. 

The Decatur Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners      recognizes the academic achievement of our students and provides scholarships to all college-bound seniors. 

  • Over the past 31 years, the Decatur Housing Authority has awarded over $708,950 in scholarships. 
  • In partnership with City Schools of Decatur, DHA has operated a daily after school program for the past 31 years for Pre-K to fifth grade students, called Successfully Teaching Academic Readiness (STAR), which assists with academic readiness, reading, and computer literacy skills. 
  • DHA is a steadfast supporter of education in our community.

Some of the School Academic Awards that will be presented today are: Perfect Attendance, Overall Improvement,  Honor Roll,           Performing Arts, All Around Athlete, Good  Citizenship and Outstanding Conduct.

All DHA college bound seniors who are attending a two or four year college or Technical School are eligible for a scholarship from the  Decatur Housing Authority's Board of Commissioners.  Additionally, any adults living in DHA's affordable housing   communities who are seeking a degree are also eligible for  a scholarship.
