The Cape Fear Community College Foundation recently awarded merit scholarships to eight local students who will begin their first year of college at CFCC this fall.
The recipients demonstrated academic excellence and leadership in their high school careers. Academic performance, extracurricular activities, and community service were all considered in the selection process.
The 2019 Merit Scholar recipients are Kristen Alicia Peacock, E. A. Laney High School; Fausto Chirinos, Eugene Ashley High School; Aubrey Benjamin Hutsell, E. A. Laney High School; Matthew Logan Francisco, Hoggard High School; Lucas Davis, Topsail High School; Annalise Litterio, Wilmington Christian Academy; Kieran Schwartz, Isaac Bear Early College; Tatum Marie Beck, New Hanover High School
Each student received $1,300 toward their first semester at CFCC, and will receive an additional $1,300 for the spring semester if they maintain a 3.5 GPA while completing 12 credit hours this fall.
The Merit Scholars will also benefit from support provided by the CFCC Foundation throughout the academic year.
The CFCC Foundation’s merit scholarships are awarded each year. To be considered, a student must be a current high school senior within New Hanover or Pender County and must have applied or been approved to enroll at Cape Fear Community College.
