We are so excited to announce the FIRST PLACE WINNER of the MCKRE Gives Silver Lining Scholarship, Ethan Dudley from Croatan High School! Ethan will receive $1,000 toward his NC State University education (Go Pack!) AND $500 to donate to a local charity of his choice, to be announced next week.
Y’all, we were blown away by this entry! Take a listen to Ethan’s original song about his unconventional senior year and the lessons he’s learned – new hobbies, a job and his growing love for music to help cope are just a few! Is this song available on iTunes, yet?! So impressive. Congratulations, Ethan!
THANK YOU to all of the seniors who submitted videos. They each brought smiles and even some tears. Our next generation is strong, resilient and creative – we can’t wait to see what your futures bring. Always know that your community is here to cheer you on every step of the way ❤️
