Blue & Gold Scholarship
Emily Hartsell, a senior at North Rowan High School, has been named a Blue & Gold scholar at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She was chosen from more than 800 high-achieving applicants and will receive a $16,000 scholarship — $4,000 per year for her four years at UNCG.
“I’m proud of all our Blue & Gold scholars. Their hard work and commitment to excellence exemplifies the spirit of the students here at UNC-Greensboro,” said Chris Keller, director of undergraduate admissions at the university. “These scholarships are truly life-changing. I’m thrilled that these students have this opportunity and can’t wait to see where their academic journey leads.”
Emily is a member of the National Honor Society, plays volleyball, is a part of the Crosby Scholars program, and is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. This fall, she will enter UNCG to study elementary education.
Blue & Gold scholarship recipients are selected by a committee of admissions recruitment staff based on leadership roles, community service, honors and awards, and academic record. Emily is recognized among the top applicants to UNCG this school year.
