Our final Centennial Scholar, Alanna Autry, a graduate of Jordan HS was introduced at the meeting by outgoing Scholarship Committee Chair Meg Solera. The other three scholars were introduced at last Monday’s meeting. Ms. Autry is headed to UNC Charlotte to study communications and journalism.
All the Centennial Scholarship students have been mentored for years by Student U, a student college going support organization whose mission is to empower students in the Durham Public Schools to own their education by developing the academic skills and personal well-being necessary to succeed in college and beyond.
Each awardee received a $1,000 scholarship for freshman year, and with continued enrollment and academic success, will receive a renewed $1,000 for their second year. Each also received a plaque to recognize their outstanding achievement.
Congratulations to all the scholarship students and the families and supporters at Student U.
