Area Senior Receives Leadership Scholarship

Immokalee High School senior Pierre “Alex” Jeanty has been awarded the Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain Leadership Scholarship from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. This is Bowdoin’s top scholarship, developed to prepare scholars to take their place as leaders in their communities and in their careers.

The four-year scholarship will not only provide financial assistance, but it will also give Alex the opportunity to attend three specially tailored summer experiences. The first summer grant will cover the cost of a five-week summer enrichment program at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire where he will take an expository writing course as well as two other elective courses. Following completion of his first year at Bowdoin, Alex will be awarded a summer grant of up to $3,000 to cover the cost of a two-month internship.
