The recipients were recently honored with a luncheon hosted by Head of School Hugh McIntosh and Margaret Penniman Boudreaux, Class of ’76 graduate and current teacher. The Penniman Scholars are selected each year by the grade level English teachers and presented to the outstanding English student in each Middle School grade.
The first Penniman Award was given in 1988 to Lee C. “Buster” Kantrow and Cathy White Engle. The fund was established by G. Allen Penniman, Jr. in remembrance of his wife Mary Virginia Crain Penniman, who had a passion for English studies.
