The Bryan Cameron Education Foundation recently announced that Harrison Snowden, a student from Ponte Vedra High School, has received the Cameron Impact Scholarship.
The Foundation named 15 Cameron Impact Scholars in total; recipients get a four-year merit-based scholarship to cover the full tuition and educational expenses at the scholars' chosen collegiate institution. Scholars can attend any U.S. university to which they are accepted and major in any academic area.
A list of the 2018 Cameron Impact Scholars, the Foundation's second class of scholars, can be found at www.bryancameroneducationfoundation.org/cameron-impact-scholars/directory.
The Foundation received nearly 2,100 reviewable applications for this year's Cameron Impact Scholarship from all 50 states and abroad. Following an online application process, 94 Finalists from 34 states and/or territories were selected for in-person interviews.
“As we continue to build our family of Cameron Impact Scholars, we are increasingly assured that our future is in exceptional hands," Executive Director Amie Lucas said. "The high-level of accomplishment and potential evidenced in each and every one of our Scholars is awe inspiring and truly humbling.”
A Cameron Impact Scholar must demonstrate a positive engagement in community service, exhibit strong leadership qualities, be active in extracurricular activities and show strength in academics. Furthermore, Cameron Impact Scholars must be zealous to use individual gifts and talents to make a positive impact on the world around them.
The Bryan Cameron Education Foundation is a private, family foundation established in 2015 by Bay Area philanthropist, Bryan Cameron. Through its four-year undergraduate scholarship program, the Foundation aims to provide ample support for extraordinary young adults who see their college education as a stepping stone toward a lifetime of contribution to the greater good.
“The Foundation is pleased to be making an investment in the college education of these scholars," Camerson said. "Each has demonstrated an ability to achieve at a high level, and through their gifts and experiences make an impact on their community at a young age. We congratulate each of the Scholars on their award, and have every confidence that these young men and women will make a significant impact in their professional and personal lives for many years.”
