Congrats to the Class of 2016!
In spring 2016, 14 MOST Scholars graduated from six high schools in Shelby County: Christian Brothers High School, Evangelical Christian School, Immaculate Conception Cathedral School, Memphis Catholic High School, Tipton-Rosemark Academy, and Word of Faith Christian Academy. Thirteen will attend college in the fall, and one has enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. Two of the graduates scored a 30 or higher on the ACT, and seven have been offered sizable college scholarships.
In early May, we celebrated the group during a reception at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. Every year, this special event allows us time to acknowledge the accomplishments of each graduate and give thanks to the donors who help make MOST scholarships possible. Furthermore, we recognize the parents who have sacrificed time and treasure to send their children to the schools of their choice. Indeed, we are proud of these young men and women — all accomplished in their own right. Their intended fields of study are as impressive as they are varied: aerospace, software development, medicine, graphic design, engineering, business management, filmmaking, and more.
We wish them the best in their future endeavors.
