Senior Reagan Maxwell is selected as Wesleyan's Belk Scholar nominee

The College Advising Office is pleased to announce that senior Reagan Maxwell is Wesleyan’s nominee for the Belk Scholars competition at Davidson College. Belk Scholar nominees “must demonstrate academic excellence and purposeful engagement in the classroom, with student and civic organizations, on the athletic field, or in the arts. While academic achievement is paramount, Belk Scholars also exhibit intellectual curiosity and a commitment to both their local and global communities.”
Maxwell has compiled a superlative academic record resulting in membership in numerous honor societies including NHS, English, Science, Rho Kappa, and Mu Theta. She has been recognized as an AP Scholar with Honors by the College Board.
Beyond the classroom, Maxwell is deeply involved with dance; she has completed summer intensives for the past three summers across the U. S. and around the globe. She attended summer intensives with the Boston Ballet, and Dutch National Ballet Academy, Royal Danish Ballet, and with European School of Ballet in Rome. After seeing the disparity for public school students in art programming and because of her love for ballet, Maxwell began a non-profit after-school dance program for Peachtree Elementary School. She exposed the children to dance and through the generosity of sponsors was able to outfit all the participants in ballet tights, leotards, and shoes for their final recital. Maxwell gives back to Wesleyan as a four-year member of the basketball cheerleading team. She is the captain for the second year. She enjoys cheering the Wolves on to victory while using her considerable dance skills to do so.
If awarded, the Belk Scholarship covers the full cost of attendance for four years as well as stipends for summer programs. Congratulations to the Maxwell family for this tremendous honor, and best wishes, Reagan, on your quest to become a Belk Scholar!
