While their senior year held many altered traditions, one fact that held true for the Westminster Academy class of 2021 was the abundance of scholarship offers these hardworking students received. The class of 32 students was offered in excess of 4.5 million dollars in scholarship money. The combined senior class accepted over $1.8 million in scholarship money over the next four years, which comes to an average of over $14,800 per student, per year.
Among the notable awards are Valedictorian Emma Gregory’s multiple scholarships to the University of Mississippi. She has received academic, leadership, and music scholarships and has been accepted into the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College where she plans to study music education.
Salutatorian Ginny Fisher will attend the University of Mississippi on both merit and leadership scholarships, and she plans to study engineering.
This year’s senior class also boasts a National Merit Scholarship Finalist in Kendall Smith. She will be attending the University of Alabama and plans to study social work and political science on a pre-med track.
2021 graduate Christian Ivers has chosen to enlist in the United States Marine Corps and Julianna May is going on a World Race Gap Year where she will serve in several countries over the course of the year.
