Charlotte Christian School seniors Emily Ketron and Christian Cunningham were named the 2018 recipients of the Jennifer Hendrick and Kimberly Hendrick Memorial Scholarships during chapel held Thursday, Oct. 11. Mrs. Cathy Hendrick established the two scholarships in May of 2005 to provide full tuition for two seniors at Charlotte Christian School who exemplify a humble, Christ-like spirit, and heart of service to the Lord.
The scholarships are in memory and honor of her daughters, Jennifer Marie Hendrick and Kimberly Paige Hendrick, both Charlotte Christian graduates of the Class of 2000. Their precious lives, along with the life of their father, John Hendrick, family members and friends, were surrendered to the Lord on Oct. 24, 2004 in a tragic airplane accident.
Both scholarship recipients have been actively involved in the Charlotte community as well as life at Charlotte Christian. Emily is a member of the Accolade yearbook staff, varsity tennis team, and a member/officer of the National Art Honor Society. She serves as an admissions ambassador and also volunteers in the nursery at her church. Christian is a member of the football team. He is naturally-inclusive and has traveled to the Dominican Republic during J-Term to participate in a mission trip. He also volunteers at his church-sponsored summer camp.
