Monroe student wins Reynolds scholarship to Wake Forest University
August 17, 2009
Mikal Drye of Monroe is one of four high school seniors to win the Nancy Susan Reynolds Scholarship to attend Wake Forest University this fall.
The four-year scholarship is one of the most selective in the nation. Each winner receives an annual stipend covering the costs of tuition, room, board and personal expenses plus grant opportunities for summer research, travel and international study.
Reynolds Scholars are typically in the top one percent of their class and are chosen for their unusual distinction in the classroom and their exceptional civic leadership potential. The scholarship was established in 1982 in honor of Nancy Susan Reynolds by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation.
Drye, the daughter of Sandy M. Drye and Brenda E. Drye of Monroe, graduated from North Carolina School of Science and Math in Durham.
