Amy Channell, a homeschooled student from La-Grange, has been awarded the prestigious Learning and Living Scholarship from LaGrange College. The honor, given to two incoming first-year students, provides full tuition, fees, room and board.
Channell was chosen from more than 135 academically gifted students who applied for admission to the college to compete for the scholarship. In February, she participated in the annual Presidential Scholarship Weekend that included interviews and leadership activities.
“We look for students who have completed a strong college preparatory curriculum,” said Joseph Miller, Vice President of Enrollment at the college. “They also must show evidence of an exceptional record of service to school, community or church.”
The daughter of James and Molly Channell, she plans to pursue a biology degree at LaGrange.
Georgia’s oldest private institution of higher learning, LaGrange College is consistently ranked among the South’s top colleges by U.S. News & World Report. A four-year liberal arts and sciences college affiliated with the United Methodist Church, LaGrange offers more than 70 areas of study with an emphasis on global engagement and service.
