Roxboro Community School (RCS) seniors Katie King and Maggie Rand received the Lewis “Eddie” Winstead Memorial Scholarship this week.
A December fundraiser -- and all-star basketball game -- raises money for scholarships for RCS and Person High School (PHS) athletes who plan to go to a four-year college and major in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) field.
The scholarship is in memory of Eddie Winstead, a stand-out student athlete at PHS. His family decided the scholarship was the perfect way to honor his memory.
KIng plans to study at UNC-Charlotte next year. Rand plans to attend UNC-Chapel Hill.
The checks for the scholarships were delivered to King and Rand at RCS on Wednesday, Feb. 19 by Winstead’s mother, Dr. Rachel Winstead Warren, and sister, Cassandra Gilbert.
