Enoch Office Equipment service technician George Wachter recently learned that his son Anthony was nominated for the Carson Scholarship.
The Carson Scholars Fund awards $1,000 college scholarships to students in grades 4-11 who excel academically and are dedicated to serving their communities. Scholarship winners receive the honor of being named “Carson Scholars” and are awarded with an Olympic-sized medal and a trophy for their school to celebrate their accomplishments.
The Carson Scholars Fund, Inc. was founded in 1994 to address the education crisis in the United States. When world-renowned Johns Hopkins Pediatric Neurosurgeon Benjamin S. Carson, M.D. and his wife, Candy, read a research study about education in the United States, they were alarmed by the findings. The study showed that our nation’s students ranked #21 out of 22 countries; next to the bottom of the list in science and math.
Dr. and Mrs. Carson felt compelled to take action. They believed that if children could be taught early to excel, they would stay motivated and have a higher chance of educational success later in life. The Carson Scholars Fund was built on these principles.
Just being nominated for the Carson Scholarship is a tremendous honor! In order to even be considered for this scholarship, a student must maintain at least a 3.75 GPA and display humanitarian qualities throughout the community.
“We believe that Anthony is an ideal candidate based on his academic performance, his work ethic, and his involvement in the community through Boy Scouts,” wrote Red Pump Elementary Gifted and Talented teacher Holly Schwartz in a letter to Anthony’s parents.
Anthony is the first ever nominee for the Carson Scholarship from Red Pump Elementary.
Congratulations Anthony from everyone here at Enoch Office Equipment!
