This merit-based scholarship is available to graduating seniors from First Flight High School or Manteo High School, based on good academic standing, and involvement in community and athletic activities. Additionally, preference may be given to a cheerleader or member of a swim team. This scholarship is potentially renewable for up to three additional years, so long as the student maintains a minimum B average (2.7) and full-time college enrollment.
