This year, Mecklenburg County Teen Court awarded the first MCTC Recognition Scholarships to eligible seniors for their dedication to and impact upon this program. Gavin Gwaltney, the winner of a $3,000 scholarship, will be attending Duke Univ. in the fall. He has served MCTC for five years, acting as a juror, attorney and attorney mentor. His dedication to the program is exemplified by his almost 200 hours of service. Additional honorees were Madison Nygren, who received $1,800 towards her education at the Univ. of Southern California and Olivia Fitzgerald, who will use her $1,200 award at Appalachian State Univ. We so appreciate their contributions to our program. We will miss them but know they will make an impact on the world at large.
