The NC Triad Chapter region is sending twenty-seven new students to Blacksburg this year.  The applicants for this year’s scholarship are all highly accomplished students, both in the classroom and out of it.  Most students averaged well over 1750 SAT scores and GPA’s above 3.5 (on a weighted scale).

The recipients of this year’s scholarship are Ryan Furrow from High Point Central High School in High Point, NC and Allison Quinn of Forsyth Country Day School in Lewisville, NC.

 

Ryan is a graduate of High Point Central’s International Baccalaureate program.  The son of Roger and Rebecca Furrow, he lives in High Point.  During Ryan’s high school career, he was involved in the National Honor’s Society, Government School, Beta Boys State, and played Soccer.  He was ranked in the top 10% of his graduating class.  Ryan intends to major in Aerospace Engineering at Virginia Tech.
