Seniors Recognized at Starkville Academy
Starkville Academy would like to congratulate two seniors on their amazing accomplishments. Reilly Mapp was recently awarded the Mississippi Excellence in Teaching Program Scholarship. This four-year scholarship covers tuition, books, and fees, in addition to providing stipends for room and board, a laptop or tablet of her choice and for the opportunity to study abroad. Mapp plans to attend Mississippi State University and become a special education teacher.
Also, senior Lake Little has been named a Regional Finalist for the 2019 Class of Coca-Cola Scholars Program. More than 200,000 applicants and 1,800 Semifinalists participated in the program, and Little was named one of 251 students chosen as Regional Finalists. For the next phase, Little will participate in a 20-minute interview with the Regional Interview Committee, and 150 finalists will be selected in March to each receive a $20,000 college scholarship.
