March 17, 2013

The Carson Scholars Fund has announced the Washington County students who have been named  2013 Carson Scholars. 

Each year, the fund recognizes a group of high achieving students in grades four to 11 who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement and humanitarian qualities. 

Students receive a $1,000 college scholarship award and the  honor of being named a Carson Scholar.

 In addition, students have renewed their Carson Scholar status.

The  previous winners have maintained high academic standards and a strong commitment to their communities and are being recognized for their continued efforts. 

To celebrate their accomplishments, the Mid-Atlantic scholars will be honored at the 17th annual awards banquet on Sunday, April 7, at Martin’s West in Woodlawn, Md. 

Newscaster Sam Donaldson will serve as master of ceremonies. 

Honored guests include Dr. John Mather, astrophysicist and Nobel Laureate in physics; Matt Stover, former Baltimore Ravens kicker; and Chris Wallace, Emmy Award-winning journalist and Fox News anchor.

World-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, for whom the program is named, will deliver the keynote speech.
