WRRC Scholarship Program
The Wilmington Road Runners provides two annual scholarship awards to qualified high-school seniors in the Wilmington area
Congratulations to our 2018 Wilmington Road Runners Scholarship Award Winners!
Coached by Colin Hackman at Cape Fear Academy
"On every level Dani exemplifies the tenants of what we try to teach in our program: team before self, consistency and accountability. From as young as fourteen years old she would lead our practices, and off-season efforts. She held her teammates to her own high standard, and, through positive reinforcement, changed the culture of our program. Dani is the total package. She exemplifies all that is good about scholastic running". Coach Hackman
"It is an honor to receive this award because running has been such an important part of my life. I started running cross country on a whim in seventh grade and it completely changed my attitude towards sports and turned me into a lifelong athlete. Running taught me endurance, leadership, and the value of a supportive team. The Wilmington running community is very special to me because everyone is so friendly and supportive of one another and there's always a race going on. I am honored to be recognized for my years of running and I hope to continue running for a very long time."
Coached by Sam Bobbitt at Laney.
"Cameron is a really smart, considerate and passionate young man. He works to excel in everything he does. He has stayed the course of being a distance runner since his freshman year and has always striven to be the best he can be as a competitor and teamate. He stepped into the role of leader during his junior year without any persuasion or delegation from me. In the classroom he excels, and he volunteers in many school, church and community events." Coach Bobbitt.
"I feel honored to be receiving this scholarship from the WRRC. This scholarship is a contributing payment to my upcoming academic year at NC State University. I will be able to spend more time focusing on my education as well as continuing my passion for running instead of working extra hours to help pay off my tuition. I want to again thank my cross country and track coach, Samuel Bobbitt, for being a truly wise mentor. Along with many life lessons, he has taught me to love running and never give up on my dreams no matter how hard the race gets."
