BA student wins Robinson award

Beaufort Academy sophomore Lawrence Lindsay was recently named as the recipient of the 2016 T. Reynolds Robinson Scholarship.

This scholarship has been awarded annually at BA since 1989 – the year Reynolds died tragically at the age of 13. Reynolds was a student at Beaufort Academy during his short, but full-of-adventure life.

This 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 and 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.

Church leaders to visit Holy Trinity students

Twelve senior leaders from the Anglican Leadership Institute will visit with students from Holy Trinity on Saturday, Sept. 17, to learn more about the classical Christian education provided to students at the school. The leaders, primarily Anglican, hail from three countries in Africa, as well as North and South America, China and the Middle East.

The program at the Parish Church of St. Helena will include presentations by Holy Trinity students on what a classical Christian education means to them, a recitation from one of the great books, a musical performance, a parent testimony and a keynote address by the Rev. Chad E. Lawrence, the school headmaster.

USCB team develops website for Penn Center

A year of planning, development and plain old hard work by a team of students at the University of South Carolina Beaufort culminated in a fresh, new website for the Penn Center in July. Now the team is already planning to develop a new website for a second client, the Heritage Library Foundation on Hilton Head Island.

Working closely with Victoria Smalls, director of Development and Marketing, and Mariah Robinson, a former intern at Penn Center, Dr. Brian Canada began researching the 100 most-effective nonprofit websites to find appropriate examples to emulate.
