J. Scott Morgan Scholarship
The J. Scott Morgan Scholarship Fund was established in November 2014 to create a fund to be held and administered by Westminster Catawba Christian School to provide assistance to young alumni pursuing God’s calling in their lives. This fund will provide an annual scholarship to support alumni in their post-high school academic and pre-professional careers while also recognizing the continued demonstration of Christian character after graduation from WCCS.
Scott Morgan was father to three WCCS alumni. For many years, he was a loyal supporter of WCCS, having served as a member of the Board, a proud cheerleading dad, and even a substitute teacher. Scott truly lived out his calling as a human resources manager where he touched the hearts and changed the lives of his colleagues. He had a heart for mentoring young people during the pursuit of their own calling. He encouraged and challenged many young adults to seek enriching experiences such as internships or study abroad in search of where God has called them.
Guidelines for the Scholarship
A one thousand dollar ($1,000) scholarship will be awarded annually to one WCCS alumnus/alumna enrolled in a degree-seeking program at a collegiate institution. These monies can be used to underwrite the expenses incurred by participation in internships, co-operative education programs, volunteer work, travel/study abroad, research, conferences, or other experiences that are being pursued by the student in order to guide his/her path towards the career into which God is calling. At the completion of the funded project, the recipient must report back to the committee on his or her experience. The candidates will meet the following eligibility requirements:
Must be a graduate of WCCS who remains in good standing with the school;
Must be enrolled as a degree-seeking student at an accredited college or university in the United States (applies to 2-year and 4-year programs);
Must exemplify leadership potential, Christ-like values, and good moral character after graduation from WCCS, as demonstrated in both academics and campus involvement;
Must have a minimum, cumulative collegiate GPA of 2.75.
