Class of 2026 Welcome Dinner 2022

The Class of 2026 and their families joined us for Park Scholarships Welcome Dinner on August 16, 2022.

Students say “goodbye” to their families at this event before beginning their journey as Park Scholars.

The Class of 2026 is comprised of 41 students, hailing from 9 different U.S. states and 20 North Carolina counties. Its members include published authors and poets, dedicated tutors and mentors, decorated athletes and coaches, award-winning researchers and engineers, and talented musicians and dancers. These scholars have organized important community events ranging from an equity convention to county-wide blood drives. They advocate for sustainability, equity, inclusion, and representation.
