Bainbridge High School senior Abbey Gardner recently participated in LaGrange College’s Presidential Scholar Weekend competition and earned thousands of dollars in scholarship awards.

At the competition, students were judged on their performance in group discussions, written essays and individual interviews. Students offered scholarships can utilize the awards in the fall of 2019, and the scholarships are renewable for the following three years.

Presidential Scholars are awarded a full scholarship, while Vice President of Academic Affairs’ Scholars receive $21,000, Fellows Scholars earn $17,000 and Founders Scholars get $16,000.
