Six of the 13 seniors and instructors who received the Stephens Award this spring came from Little Rock Catholic high schools. The Stephens Award from the City Education Trust provided $5,000 scholarships to the students and $5,800 cash awards to the instructors.
Recipients were honored during a ceremony and reception April 18 at the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce AT&T Auditorium.
“I was surprised, then pleased and finally humbled after I heard the news,” said Pursley, who is in his first year teaching at MSM. “I am grateful that I have a small role in Mount St. Mary Academy’s excellent learning community.”
