Please join us in congratulating Makenna Hammer, NCS Senior, on her runner up finish today in the 1A/2A NCHSAA Eastern Regional Golf Championship. Makenna finished second in a field of 47 and will move on to represent Neuse Charter School in the State championship next week. Makenna's success shows that NCS student athletes can excel, while meeting NCS academic standards.
Ethan Connor McSwain, one of our Neuse Charter School Seniors, has just been offered a “Full Ride Scholarship” to the University of Alabama. What does this mean? He will be awarded $100,000.00 to attend this 4 year college. Ethan and his fellow senior seminar classmates, have been working hard this semester learning all about how to prepare for and apply to college. Many of theses students have chosen to apply early with the hopes to complete this stressful process early. One of our Senior Seminar Students stated, “Applying early means the schools will reply early. Finding out early where I am accepted and being able to make a choice on what school to attend, will take a huge weight off my shoulders.”
Ethan is still applying to other colleges like NC State University, but finding an offer better than the University of Alabama’s will be tough. Ethan is interested in majoring in a science related field but exactly what, he has not decided. We at Neuse Charter School are very proud of him and wish him best of luck in whatever school is lucky enough to have him.
