  • Summer Davis, a fifth-grade student at Lulu Ross Elementary School, was recognized in April for an essay that earned her $1,000 from the Carson Scholars Fund. Davis was one of 11 Delaware students to earn a new scholarship and was recognized at a banquet with more than 1,000 attendees in Maryland on April 6. Davis, who is only 11, shared some advice on how she won the scholarship and how she keeps her grades up by being passionate about her favorite subjects.
     
    Q: What did you do to win the Carson Scholarship?
    A: I wrote an essay about what makes me superior. I talked about how I played piano since 2009 and won awards from my teachers. My Aunt Lynn plays piano, too, so she was my inspiration to start. I was almost shocked when I found out I won because I thought another classmate would win it.
     
    Q: What’s your favorite subject in school and why?
    A: Math is my best subject and I don’t really like to read. With math, I’m always higher than the other kids and it comes easier.
     
    Q: What do you want to be when you grow up and why?
    A: I want to be a photographer, and then I want to paint the pictures I take. So I want to be a photographer and an artist. I’m in 4H and we have a photography club, and I have to take photos for the Delaware State Fair and can earn money from them. I like to look at all of the pictures I take. They become memories.
     
    Q: What advice would you give classmates to be successful when applying for scholarships?
    A: I would say to keep your grades up because most scholarships go to people with higher GPAs. Always try your hardest in your work because that essay determined whether or not I got a $1,000 scholarship. A scholarship could pop up at any time, and you could use your school work, so you always want to try your best.
