Three students from Talbot County Public Schools have been named 2022 Carson Scholars. The Carson Scholars Fund, Inc. was founded in 1994 by former Johns Hopkins Pediatric Neurosurgeon Benjamin S. Carson, M.D., and his wife Candy. The fund awards $1,000 in college scholarships to students in grades 4-11 who excel academically and are dedicated to serving their communities. Previous winners of Carson Scholarships may reapply for Carson Scholar recognition each year and the students are recognized at regional award ceremonies in the Spring.
This year’s TCPS Carson Scholars are as follows:
New Carson Scholar
Kadence McGuckin – 8th grade – Easton Middle School
Recognized Carson Scholar
Tessa Diefenderfer – 6th grade – Easton Middle School
Autumn Redman – 10th grade – Easton High School
