Students receive money for college thru the Carson Scholar Program

  • The Dr. Ben Carson Scholarship, awarded to a current 4th or 5th grade student.

Ben Carson Scholarship

Our Ben Carson Scholarship Recipient for 2016-17 is Lily Boutelle.

Announcing The Ben Carson Foundation Scholarship

Dr. and Mrs. John Sheppard endowed Edison Park with a donation of $30,000 for college scholarships. Each year the scholarship recipient will be sent a letter reporting how much their scholarship has grown. Recipients can re-apply up to 5 more times throughout middle and high school.

Each year a committee of teachers and the principal will select 3 scholars from 4th or 5th grade who demonstrate academic excellence and a strong commitment to their community. The 3 scholars send an application with an essay to the Carson Foundation in Maryland. One student is selected by the Carson Foundation to receive a $1,000 scholarship to be invested to their college fund.

The winner is honored at a banquet with winners from other schools. Recipients will receive a gold medal, money held in a scholarship fund and their name added to trophy to be kept at Edison Park. To be a Carson Scholar is an amazing honor.

Lily is a member of the a children's choir at church.  She also helps run tech on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings for the children programs. She has volunteered at the Thanksgiving food distribution at Harlem Heights for a few years.  She went on a mission trip to Colorado, she was a tag along with her sister and brother who were youth leaders, but she did a great job and probably one of the few that memorized the scripture verses the students were supposed to memorize. She helped with the setup and teardown of a fundraiser dinner for a missionary family. For her birthday party she asked each of the girls to bring a new or gently used stuffed animal that she added to the ones she donated to Valerie's House, an organization that helps children who have experienced the death of a loved one.
