2023 Graduating high school students who are attending Pacifica High School (or residing in the Pacifica High School Boundaries - Garden Grove, Cypress, Stanton) in Garden Grove, California.


The Team Tackney Scholarship was created to support the academic achievement of Garden Grove residents and to support the next generation of good neighbors. We at Team Tackney | GMT Real Estate are looking to recognize a young person from the neighborhood who is continuing their education in some way beyond high school and who embodies the qualities of a good neighbor. Being a good neighbor can be so many different things. Share with us your passions, accomplishments, and what inspires you.

The fund was established by Geoff and Jen Tackney of Team Tackney | GMT Real Estate who have lived and raised their children in Garden Grove with all three children currently attending GGUSD schools. They designed this scholarship in gratitude to this wonderful neighborhood and its residents that have enhanced their lives and business.
