Gerstell Academy Students Recognized as Carson Scholars

After a rigorous application process, Junior Imari Owens has been awarded the 2024 Carson Scholars Award. The Carson Scholars Fund awards a one-time $1,000 scholarship to students in grades 4-11 who excel academically and serve their community. Scholarship winners receive the honor of being named Carson Scholars, an Olympic-sized medal, and a trophy for their school to celebrate their accomplishments. 

Gerstell students Olivia Sprinkle '24, Ashtyn Logue '26, and Colton Smith ‘28 have also been recognized as returning Carson Scholars. This honor is given to recipients who maintain their eligibility under the requirements of the Scholarship Fund. Gerstell Academy Portrait Leader, Dr. Ben Carson and his wife, Candy, started this fund under the principle that if children could be taught early to excel, they would stay motivated and have a higher chance of educational success in life. Though recognized scholars do not receive additional monies, they are honored each year as they continue this important legacy.
Student winners will be honored on May 19th at the Baltimore area Carson Scholars event. 
Congratulations to the Gerstell Carson Scholars!
