The Carson Scholars Fund is pleased to announce that 526 students across the country have been named 2015 Carson Scholars. Each year the Fund recognizes a select group of high achieving students in grades 4 – 11 who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and humanitarian qualities. Students receive a $1,000 college scholarship award and the coveted honor of being named a Carson Scholar. In addition, 769 students have renewed their Carson Scholar status. These previous winners have maintained high academic standards and a strong commitment to their communities and are being recognized for their efforts. The recipients being honored in Calvert County are listed below.
To celebrate their accomplishments, the Mid-Atlantic scholars will be celebrated at the annual awards banquet on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at Martin’s West in Woodlawn, Maryland. Honored guests include: Peter Agre, 2003 Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry; Donlin Long, founder of Johns Hopkins Department of Neurosurgery and Department of Clinical Neurosciences; internationally acclaimed musician Wynton Marsalis and performing arts pioneer Toby Orenstein.
