Three students from the Academy at Hickory Hollow have racked up big scholarship dollars from the Simon Youth Foundation, to the tune of $28,000 each!

Lance Dowling, Clinton Ekwuazi, and Simone Ross-Thompson were awarded the scholarships during the Opry Mills Mall grand re-opening celebration on Saturday, May 5.

SYF established the Community Scholarship to meet the financial needs of students in communities that host Simon® shopping centers. The goal of the Foundation is to apply a holistic approach to the educational experiences of our youth. Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of financial need, academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, and an outside appraisal. The Academy at Hickory Hollow relocated from Opry Mills after the May 2010 floods that submerged the Opryland area, but still receives great support from SYF. The Academy at Opry Mills, will re-open this fall.

Lance Dowling is a May 2012 graduate, who will be attending Middle Tennessee State University to study sports medicine. Clinton Ekwuazi, also a May 2012 graduate, has been accepted to Middle Tennessee State University and waiting on a response from Austin Peay State University. Simone Ross-Thompson, a December 2011 graduate, has been accepted to Tennessee State University.


Big congratulations are due to three Metro high schoolers who are so determined to go to college they just received a combine $60,000 in scholarships from Dell Computers!

Brandon P. and Escarlet E., both of McGavock, and Dustin Binkley of Maplewood were all named 2012
Dell Scholars. The Dell Scholars program honors students who have a strong determination to succeed and great academic potential.

That's exactly why Brandon, Escarlet, and Dustin participate in the
AVID program at their schools. AVID stands for 'Advancement via Individual Determination' and is designed for students who have a determination to graduate and attend college. AVID students work on their own and with tutors to learn study skills, leadership skills, test taking skills, organization skills, career opportunities, and time management as well as many other strategies for success in high school, college, careers, and life.

It took a lot of hard work to get where they are, and we say congratulations to all three of them. You are all stellar students!

P.S. - If Dustin's name looks familiar, it's because he was also the winner of this year's
Hume Award for athletic sportsmanship and academic achievement AND he played on Maplewood's near-championship football team. What a year this guy's had!


National Merit Scholarship

It's one of the top national awards a high school student can receive, and Metro students earned three of them!

The National Merit Scholarship is given to students who have "the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies." Narrowed from a starting group of 1.5 million students (!) down to 15,000 finalists, just 2,500 Merit Scholars are chosen nationwide.

Three of our graduating seniors will receive honors and $2,500 to be used at the university of their choice.

  • Hui C. of MLK Magnet

  • Austin P. of Hume-Fogg Magnet

  • Jaron R. of Hume-Fogg Magnet

What an honor!


Congratulations are in order for five MLK students who were named National Achievement Scholarship recipients! Eriny H., Troie J., Jasmine K., Carmen O., and Shanna R. were among 700 students nationwide who received $2500 scholarships for outstanding academic achievements. More than 160,000 students nationwide entered the scholarship competition when they took the 2010 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Of those, 1,600 were named semifinalists and only 800 students in the nation were named finalists and received scholarships.

According to a news release issued by National Merit Scholarship Corporation, the National Achievement Scholarship Program is a privately financed academic competition established in 1964 specifically to honor scholastically talented Black American youth and to provide scholarships to a substantial number of the most outstanding participants in each annual competition. By the conclusion of the 2012 program, marking the 48th annual competition, about 31,800 participants will have received scholarships for undergraduate study worth more than $100 million. The program is conducted by National Merit Scholarship Corporation, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance.
