At Atria, we believe in fostering a culture of growth and support, not only for the families we serve, but for the families of our employees as well.

The Boatman Scholarship – named in memory of Ronnie Boatman, a revered company leader – epitomizes this commitment by providing financial assistance to the children and dependents of our employees in their pursuit of higher education.

This scholarship reflects Ronnie Boatman’s enduring legacy of leadership, compassion, and dedication to lifelong learning.
