There are a number of awards and scholarships given out at Christ the King School throughout the various grades. One of the bigger ones, both in terms of money and prestige, is the Cullom Owings Scholarship. Given in memory of the son they’ve tragically lost in a car accident while he was in college, the Owings family chooses to have fifth graders nominate their peers as finalists, and then they choose the winners (one boy, one girl) from that select group. We are so proud that Danny was this year’s recipient!
Unfortunately, the award was presented while I was out of town at Shine. But Tim managed to rearrange his schedule in order to be there, and we are so glad he was.
Danny’s “competition” was a pair of boys who are really kind, smart boys, so it truly was an honor to be nominated. We are confident he will do Cullom and his family proud.
