HCPSS Students Named 2024 Carson Scholars

April 9th, 2024

Thirty-one HCPSS students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and dedication to serving their communities have been recognized as 2024 Carson Scholars, including eight students who were named first-time Scholars.

The Scholars program is open to all students in grades 4-11 in the United States. Students must have a grade point average of 3.75 or above on a 4.0 scale in the combined academic subjects: English/Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Foreign Languages. They must also demonstrate humanitarian qualities in both school and community, above what is required.

Recognized Carson Scholars renew their status by maintaining high academic standards and continuing to show strong commitment to their communities.

Each first-time Scholar receives a monetary college scholarship award. Both first-time and Recognized Scholars will be honored during a celebration in May.

More information and the complete lists of new and recognized Carson Scholars are available online.
