Remarkable News from Cushing

On behalf of Cushing, I am thrilled to share some truly remarkable news with our Penguin community.
The E. G. Watkins Family Foundation and Chris Watkins '56 have made an exciting, long-term commitment to the Academy in establishing the new Watkins Scholar Program-a program that will award full, need-based scholarships to 20 high-achieving, ninth-grade, domestic students with an excellent academic record and a love of learning, strong leadership skills, and a desire to contribute significantly to Cushing Academy. Possessing great academic promise, recipients of the Watkins scholarship will be provided a four-year scholarship, covering 100% of tuition, fees, and school-related expenses; and they will be charged to provide economic leadership for future generations of Cushing students.
We hope that next year's incoming students will include five Watkins Scholars and that within four years the Academy will have 20 Scholars enrolled--in total representing a commitment to 5% of Cushing students of over $1 million per year. Without a doubt, the establishment of the Watkins Scholar Program is a call to action that resonates with many who already know and value Cushing. 
For additional information please visit www.cushing.org/watkins-scholar. If you know promising students of character and ability who might be a good candidate for a Watkins Scholarship, please encourage them to consider Cushing.
In this season of giving, all of us at Cushing are grateful for Chris Watkins' and his family foundation's inspirational act of philanthropy.
