Jack Carter Worrell named recipient of Emerging Leader Scholarship

Beaufort Academy freshman, Jack Carter Worrell, son of Jack and Courtney Worrell, was named the recipient of the fourth annual Emerging Leader Scholarship.

The ELS Scholarship was designed by an anonymous donor to identify and support a rising ninth grade student throughout their upper school tenure at BA. Eighth graders from all over Beaufort County were invited to apply. Its unique focus is to cultivate the leadership skills of the recipients, with the intent that these students will both show academic prowess as well as participate in leadership roles at BA and in the community. Jack Carter was selected by a committee based on his personal essay about the following attributes; courage, clarity, and character. 

Recipients of the scholarship will receive a $1,000 tuition scholarship every year throughout high school to help to defray the cost of tuition. The requirements to secure and maintain this four-year scholarship are:
  • The student must maintain at least an 88 (mid-range B) average throughout upper school.
  • The recipient must attend a leadership conference prior to his or her junior year. The conference will be mutually agreed upon by the recipient and the scholarship committee, and will be funded by the Emerging Leader Scholarship.
  • The recipient must be active in one community organization.
  • The recipient must be active in leadership roles at Beaufort Academy.
Congratulations, Jack Carter!
