Beaufort Academy sophomore Joseph “Hampton” Lane has been named the recipient of the 2020-2021 T. Reynolds Robinson Scholarship.

The scholarship has been awarded annually at Beaufort Academy since 1989 – the year BA student Reynolds Robinson died tragically at the young age of 13. The scholarship is awarded by his family, in celebration and remembrance of Reynolds.

Recipients must possess many of the qualities that people loved about Reynolds, such as strong leadership, athletic ability and the respect and friendship of classmates, in addition to maintaining a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 during the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades.

Awarded to a 10th grader, the scholarship offers $1,500 toward the student’s college education and is presented by Reynolds’ brother, Clark Robinson (BA ’87).

Hampton has been at Beaufort Academy for four years. Since his arrival at BA, he has consistently been on honor roll with a GPA of 4.89.

In 2018, Hampton was a member of the SCISA 8-man State Championship varsity football team and a member of the varsity soccer team.

According to the school’s release, his teachers describe him as an honest and dedicated student, who is always respectful to those around him and have “a high moral character.” Hampton’s coaches describe him as a quiet, determined individual who is very tough and never fails to put his best effort.
