Hannah Fears and Alexander Glover named Morehead-Cain nominations
The College Advising Office is pleased to announce that Hannah Fears '23 and Alexander Glover '23 have been nominated by a faculty committee as Wesleyan’s nominees for the Morehead-Cain Scholarship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Morehead-Cain Foundation seeks competitive applicants, who demonstrate moral force of character, academic scholarship, physical vigor, and leadership. The scholarship process is extremely selective; only 3 percent of nominees are awarded the scholarship each year.
In addition to her superior academic rigor and performance, Fears is involved at Wesleyan School as an Ambassador, SALSA (Students Advocating for Life without Substance Abuse) mentor and serves as a before care volunteer on Wednesday mornings for our lower school students. Additionally, Fears is a four-year member and senior leader on the varsity girls’ soccer team. She has participated in the sports medicine program, on the cross-country team, and has served on the prom committee in the past. Outside of school, Fears is active in National Charity League and has worked as a summer lifeguard.
In addition to his numerous academic honors and membership in several honor societies, Glover is captain of the cross-country team and a four-year member of the chapel band and History Bowl. He is also a Wesleyan Student Ambassador and serves as vice president of the Debate Club. Glover is also the owner and founder of Alexander’s Pressure Washing and has served as a student worship leader for four years at Dunwoody Baptist Church.
If awarded, the Morehead-Cain scholarship covers the full cost of attendance at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill along with unique learning and travel opportunities. Our nominees have completed a rigorous application process including writing essays, securing recommendations, and if invited to be semi-finalists, will interview with the scholarship selection committees. Congratulations to the Fears and Glover families for this tremendous honor and best wishes to our nominees in their quest to become a Morehead-Cain scholar!
