Ethan Hebert receives Bounds Scholarship from MASS
Ethan Hebert, a recent graduate of Lawrence County High School, is among 10 Mississippi students receiving $1,000 scholarships from the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents.
Named in honor of veteran educator Walter S. Bounds, the Bounds Scholarship for Excellence rewards top-performing students who excel in leadership, community service, and extracurricular activities. Recipients also must meet academic requirements and be recommended by their superintendents.
“To ensure that Mississippi has strong, capable leaders to guide us into the future, we must encourage and train those leaders today,” said Dr. Phil Burchfield, MASS executive director. “The Bounds Scholarship program celebrates students who not only demonstrate a clear commitment to excellence but also seek to be responsible leaders in their careers and communities.”
Combining an eagerness to learn with a reputation for going above and beyond, Hebert is a leader in and out of the classroom. His pursuit of excellence earned him a 3.9 grade point average and honors for the highest averages in chemistry and dual-credit college biology and algebra.
At LCHS, Hebert was active in numerous extracurricular activities, including soccer and competitive cheer.
Hebert is equally active in his community. He helped repair devastated and damaged homes as a volunteer for Catholic Heart Work Camp and served as a counselor for Camp Sunshine at Percy Quinn State Park.
He plans to attend the University of Mississippi and major in pharmaceutical sciences.
