2016 Penniman Scholars Honored with Luncheon
Episcopal School of Baton Rouge recently honored the 2016 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, Molly Frances King ’22, Christine Myer ’20 and Alex Nelson ’21, and their parents joined Hugh McIntosh and guests in the Head of School’s office on Friday, September 30, 2016. The luncheon was prepared by Chef Pat Mahon and hosted by Mr. G. Allen Penniman, Mrs. Joanie Penniman and Mrs. Margaret Penniman Boudreaux ’76, 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. The fund, established by G. Allen Penniman, has been motivating students for 28 years.
