2017 CCA Scholarship Awards Presented To
Sophia Cavacos and Gillian Harrington
The Charlotte Community Association is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2017 Edward Watson and the CCA Scholarship Awards.
The CCA award, for $1,000, is offered by the Charlotte Community Association and is funded by membership, sponsorships and various fundraising activities. This year’s recipient is Gillian Harrington, daughter of Pamela and Early Harrington of Wyndham Road. Gillian will attend SUNY New Paltz and major in Art Education.
The Edward Watson Award is a $2,000 award in memory of Edward Watson, a Charlotte resident, and former student of Charlotte School. This award is funded from donations provided by the Lakeside Presbyterian Church. This year’s recipients is Sophia Cavacos, daughter of Karen and Andrew Cavacos of Kemphurst Road. Sophia will attend Loyola University Maryland in Elementary Education.
The criteria for both scholarships are the same. The college bound senior must reside in the Charlotte neighborhood or attend the Leadership Academy for Young Men (formerly Charlotte High School).
For many years the Charlotte Community Association has offered scholarships to students who qualify based on academics, community service and extra-curricular activities. We are pleased to continue this tradition as well as start a new one with the Edward Watson Scholarship.
Congratulation Gillian and Sophia and best of luck in the future!
