in Schools by

Beaufort Academy senior Cal Harvey, along with nine other high school seniors from Beaufort and Jasper Counties, were recognized as 2019-2020 Heritage Classic Foundation Scholars during the annual luncheon held on Hilton Head Island.

Harvey received the newly named Scholar Alumni Award and will receive a $16,000 scholarship over the next four years.

Heritage Scholars are known for outstanding academic success, superior community service and they are leaders in their communities. During the awards presentation, Heritage Classic Foundation Scholar Committee Chairman, Scott Richardson told the audience, “These scholars are not just straight A students. They are leaders in their schools, communities and churches. They have interests that vary from music to sports to protecting the environment.”

A dedicated golfer, Harvey has been named MVP on Beaufort Academy’s golf team, and volunteers at the First Tee in Beaufort. He says that golf has taught him honesty, integrity, and sportsmanship.

Beaufort Academy Director of Academics Maureen Butler could not be more thrilled.

“Cal is an outstanding student and an extraordinary young gentleman,” Butler said in a release. “He leads by example and represents well the values instilled in this award.”

Beaufort High School had two Heritage Classic Foundation Scholars – Rhea Desai and Brigid Murphy.
