Bear Creek, NC - The guidance office of Chatham Central High School is inviting all of its current students eighth graders from Bennett School, Bonlee School and J.S. Waters School to attend an informational meeting on Thursday, May 6, at 7 p.m. in the Polly O. Yow Auditorium on its campus. The focus of the meeting will be how students can begin to prepare early for the path to success in scholarship acquisition as seniors.

Matthew Proto, Director of Scholar Selection for the Morehead-Cain Scholars Program, will be the guest speaker. He will give an overview of the scholarship application process and discuss the importance of taking academically rigorous courses. In addition, Proto will talk about the need for good interview skills, strong writing skills, and how evidence of leadership, community service and extracurricular activities impact the competitiveness of a student’s application. A question and answer session will also be part of the session.

Kaila Ramsey, a former Morehead-Cain Scholar and current college coach at Chatham Central, and school counselor Sandra Young are coordinating the event.

“Chatham Central has had much success over the years with its students being Morehead-Cain Scholars. We want to be more proactive with our incoming freshmen in helping them be ‘scholarship literate’ so they can be even more successful in obtaining prestigious scholarships like the Morehead-Cain, Park, Teaching Fellows and others. We hope families will take advantage of this evening and join us,” said Mitch Stensland, Principal.
