Emma Noonan, an 8th grade student at Skyuka Hall School, has been selected as one of Carson Scholar Fund's 2018 Carson Scholars.  Ms. Noonan is one of 501 students from across the country to receive this honor and a $1,000 college scholarship and recognition package.  Students selected maintain a GPA of 3.75 or higher, something that Ms. Noonan had.   

The scholarship is aimed at cultivating future leaders, who are academically talented and demonstrate kindness towards others.  Ashley Moore, a teacher at Skyuka Hall, nominated Emma for her outstanding academic achievement and her strong work ethic.  "Emma is a natural leader," said Mrs. Moore. "She is a kind-hearted intelligent young lady who has earned the respect of her teachers and peers by being a role model to other students at her school. Regardless of the challenges she may face, she never gives up.  She is motivated to do her best, to give her all in every situation."  

As part of the application process Emma had to write an essay. "I wrote my essay from the heart," said Emma. "Being in a small school you can see that we are not all the same.  We're not just different on the outside, but inside too.  Some are more sensitive than others.  Some brains can't comprehend things as fast.  It has helped me to understand that being different is okay.  I have learned how to truly be there for others and to help them grow too." 

Dr. Josh Yother, head of school at Skyuka Hall, said, “We are very proud to have Emma represent our school.  She truly represents all the qualities of a Carson Scholar – a strong work ethic, high GPA and compassion and kindness towards others at school and in the wider community.  We look forward to watching Emma grow into a future leader." 

Emma will be officially recognized at the Chattanooga/Atlanta Awards Banquet on April 29.
