Ben Carson Scholarship

Our Ben Carson Scholarship Recipient for 2017-18 is Abby Buckley.

Abigail enjoys expressing herself by participating in the Lee County Drill Team, gymnastics, dance, and theater. At school, Abigail is a member of the National Elementary Honor Society and was selected for the Duke University Talent Identification Program. Abigail has been recognized as an All-County Violinist, an All-State Ukulele player and was selected to participate at the Florida Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference with her peers. Abigail volunteers with her Girl Scout Troop, raising funds and awareness for cancer in remembrance of her grandmother, and helped with hurricane relief efforts after Irma. 


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.
