Local students named Broad Prize scholarship recipients

Seven south Charlotte students are among the 28 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ seniors to receive Broad Prize Scholarships.

Arias Ana and Nicholas Mariano from East Mecklenburg High; K’Dejah Feliciano, Bukola Onasanya and Bria Sweat from Myers Park High; and Dana Friday and Jesse Borrower from South Mecklenburg High all won a $20,000 scholarship from the Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation during a surprise announcement at a block party held for CMS employees.

CMS won the Broad Prize for Urban Education in 2011, the largest such award in the country, for the district’s overall academic improvement in student achievement while reducing gaps among minority students. The scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors who have improved their grades in high school and have a financial need.
