The votes are in! We had so many amazing entries for our MCKRE Gives Silver Linings Scholarship, that we decided to choose THREE winners! Y’all, what a treat it was to watch these submissions from high school graduates all over eastern NC!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE….our THIRD PLACE WINNER and recipient of a $250 scholarship, plus $250 to donate to the charity of his choice, is Brendan Lawson from Swansboro High! Take a listen to the silver linings that Brendan found while finishing out his senior year in quarantine – who doesn’t love bacon and homemade french toast in the mornings from Mom?! We were touched that our wonderful community was able to band together and celebrate our seniors in such special and unique ways that they will always remember.
Brendan, we are cheering you on as you move onto your next steps at NCSU (go Pack!) – you have a bright, bright future and will impact so many. Congratulations to our third place winner, Brendan, and to the class of 2020! Stay tuned for the SECOND PLACE winner to be announced shortly
