Beaufort Academy sophomore, Maeve Kalady, daughter of Mark and Meg Kalady, was named the recipient of the 2018 T. Reynolds Robinson Scholarship.
This scholarship has been awarded annually at BA since 1989 – the year Reynolds died tragically at the young age of 13. Reynolds was a student at Beaufort Academy during his short, but full-of-adventure life. This scholarship is awarded by his family, in celebration and remembrance of Reynolds.
Recipients must possess many of the qualities that people loved about Reynolds, for example strong leadership and athletic ability and the respect and friendship of classmates, in addition to maintaining a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 during the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades.
Awarded to a 10th grader, the scholarship offers $1,500 toward the student's college education. The awards were presented by Reynolds brother, Clark Robinson (BA '87), and his father, Bill Robinson.

Beaufort Academy freshman, Jack Carter Worrell, son of Jack and Courtney Worrell, was named the recipient of the fourth annual Emerging Leader Scholarship.
The ELS Scholarship was designed by an anonymous donor to identify and support a rising ninth grade student throughout their upper school tenure at BA. Eighth graders from all over Beaufort County were invited to apply. Its unique focus is to cultivate the leadership skills of the recipients, with the intent that these students will both show academic prowess as well as participate in leadership roles at BA and in the community. Jack Carter was selected by a committee based on his personal essay about the following attributes; courage, clarity, and character.
Recipients of the scholarship will receive a $1,000 tuition scholarship every year throughout high school to help to defray the cost of tuition. The requirements to secure and maintain this four-year scholarship are:
The student must maintain at least an 88 (mid-range B) average throughout upper school.
The recipient must attend a leadership conference prior to his or her junior year. The conference will be mutually agreed upon by the recipient and the scholarship committee, and will be funded by the Emerging Leader Scholarship.
The recipient must be active in one community organization.
The recipient must be active in leadership roles at Beaufort Academy.
