Episcopal School of Baton Rouge recently honored the 2015 Mary Virginia Crain Penniman Scholarship recipients with a luncheon in the Head of School's office. These scholarships are awarded annually to three of the most outstanding English students in Middle School, and the recipients are announced during the Middle School end of the year awards ceremony in May.
This year’s recipients, Adam A., Adam R., and Hallie, and their parents joined Hugh McIntosh and guests in the Head of School’s office. The luncheon was prepared by Chef Pat Mahon and hosted by G. Allen Penniman, Jr. and his daughter, Margaret Boudreaux, fifth grade English teacher.
Each year, these scholarships are determined by the grade level English teachers and were first awarded in 1988 to Lee C. “Buster” Kantrow ’91 and Cathy White Engle ’93. Previous Penniman Scholars have commented on how the scholarship gave them the encouragement to strive for success and to continue challenging themselves and setting high personal standards. "I am honored and appreciative of this award. I couldn't have done it without the help of my teachers and parents," commented Adam R. The fund, established by G. Allen Penniman, has been motivating students for more than 25 years.
If you would like information about establishing a fund to benefit students at Episcopal, please contact Katie Thompson, Director of Major Gifts and Planned Giving, in the Advancement Office at (225) 755-2741 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
