Walker Valley High School student wins $32,000 scholarship

Posted
Gabriel Mann, a senior at Walker Valley High School, has been named as a Blue & Gold scholar at UNC Greensboro. Gabriel was chosen from more than 800 high achieving applicants and will receive a $32,000 scholarship ($8,000 per year for 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 UNC Greensboro. “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.”

Blue & Gold scholarship recipients are selected by a committee of admissions recruitment staff based on their leadership roles, community service, honors and awards, and academic record. All Blue & Gold Scholars are among the top applicants to UNC Greensboro this school year.

Gabriel is an exceptional student who has participated in the Walker Valley High School Band and he has even studied abroad in Germany. This fall he has been admitted to UNC Greensboro as a music major.

This year, UNCG’s admissions office awarded 103 scholarships valued at more than $1 million across four years. To be eligible, students must meet UNCG’s priority deadline and submit a supplemental essay.
