JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Two Mount Pisgah Christian School students were awarded 2014 Honors Scholarships.
Honored with the scholarships this year are Emma Elizabeth Tepper and Sarah Jane Lynch.
The Mount Pisgah Honors Scholarship Program rewards highly motivated students, providing them an opportunity to maximize their gifts and talents.
These scholarships are renewable each year through graduation as long as the recipients continue to excel in academics and leadership.
Emma Elizabeth Tepper, an incoming Mount Pisgah Christian School seventh-grader, was an honors student at McGinnis Woods Country Day School, where she served on student government, was a member of the robotics team, played basketball, ran track and cross country, played clarinet and was invited to participate in the People to People Ambassador Summer Program.
She enjoys participating in theatrical and choral productions and volunteers for Open Hand Atlanta, the American Red Cross and Stop Hunger Now. She is also active in her church.
Sarah Jane Lynch, a Pisgah rising ninth-grader, has attended Mount Pisgah since preschool.
Selected by the Pisgah faculty to receive the eighth grade Citizenship Award, Lynch is an “Honor Roll with Distinction” student and has earned numerous awards for science, technology, Spanish, chorus and character.
Lynch is a talented volleyball player whose A5 Volleyball Club team has qualified for and competed in the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships each of the last three years. Lynch plays the flute, is a member of the Mount Pisgah chorus and math team and is captain of the middle school volleyball team.
She is also an active member of the Keeping Room Christian Counseling Services Passionate and Pure group for young women.
“We were extremely impressed with the applicants for our first year of this scholarship program, and I would like to congratulate Emma and Sarah Jane,” said Tammy Mozingo, director of admission at Mount Pisgah. “These students demonstrate outstanding academic achievement, possess strong character and leadership qualities and respect and embrace the Christian mission of our school.”
