Congratulations to Bailey Ekes, the fourth recipient of the Taylor Emmons Scholarship. Her selection completes the Emmons family’s vision to provide an Out-of-Door education for a student in all four grades of our Upper School.
Bailey outlasted a deep and highly competitive field of applicants from both Sarasota and Manatee Counties to earn this prestigious honor. She is a straight “A” student, a member of the National Junior Honor Society, a musician, a dancer, and a passionate volunteer with both local and international service organizations.
She is described by others as selfless and dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others. As one of her teachers wrote in support of her application, “This is one of the best students, and human beings, I have encountered – ever!”
Congratulations Bailey and welcome to The Out-of-Door family.
