The Dunham School is proud to announce that senior Kennedy Morgan is the recipient of a $1,500 scholarship awarded by the Neighbors Capital Area Foundation.
Kennedy, who has received more than $200,000 in college scholarship awards, will attend Baylor University where she plans to major in elementary education. During her senior year, she was named an AP Scholar® as well as a National African American Recognition Program Scholar and served as Upper School publicity prefect. Kennedy is the daughter of Dana and Brian Morgan of Baton Rouge.
Established in 2018, the Neighbors Way Tuition Assistance Award was developed in an effort to help subsidize the cost of tuition for students entering their first year of college. Area schools that participate in the Neighbors Mascot Checking Program are invited to nominate one graduating senior to receive the scholarship each year.
Students are nominated based on their character and commitment to the credit union’s core values of integrity, respect, trust, stability, community involvement, honesty, empathy, ethical behavior, and fairness. To date, the foundation has awarded more than $145,000 to students from the Greater Baton Rouge area.
Congratulations to Kennedy on this well-deserved honor and many thanks to the Neighbors Capital Area Foundation and Neighbors Federal Credit Union.
