First Teen Court Scholarship Awarded

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.
