The staff at Folly Quarter Middle School recently announced the school's nominee for this year's Carson Scholars Fund Scholarship Program — Emily Buckley.

The Carson Scholars Fund is a nonprofit organization founded in 1994 by world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon, Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, and his wife, Candy. The Carson Scholar Fund aims to recognize and reward students in grades 4-11 who earn the highest level of academic achievement and also display strong humanitarian qualities.

Emily Buckley is now designated as a Carson Scholar nominee and will compete to win a $1,000 scholarship award. Schools only get to choose one student annually for the Carson Scholar competition.

Students must then compete among the many nominees nationwide. Please join Folly Quarter Middle School in congratulating their nominee, Emily Buckley, and wishing her luck in earning the scholarship.
