Nigel Parker '21 Named Morehead-Cain Scholar

The first Gilman student to accept this prestigious honor in more than 20 years, Nigel Parker '21 has been awarded the Morehead-Cain Scholarship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Morehead-Cain Scholars program is the first merit-based scholarship established in the United States. This unique program provides a four-year, fully funded world-class educational experience as well as four summer enrichment programs for students of the highest caliber at UNC. Morehead-Cain scholars come from across the globe and embody key selection criteria of leadership, scholarship, physical vigor, and character.

After being admitted to notable HBCU and Ivy League institutions, Nigel has ultimately decided to accept the Morehead-Cain Scholarship and continue his educational career as a Morehead-Cain Scholar at UNC.

Join us in congratulating Nigel on this prestigious honor.
