Jake Low is our $1,500 winner. He lives on S. Sandfiddler Road and graduated from Ocean Lakes High School. He will be attending the University of Chicago. Jake will be joining his older brother there and play football. He has worked in summer financial internships and will head to U of C to prepare for the season.
Our $1,000 winner is Grady Bryant of S. Sandpiper Road. Grady graduated from Kellam High School and will attend Tidewater Community College before entering the Navy with an eye towards BUD/S training. He is also a Sandbridge lifeguard.
The Sandbridge Beach Business Association sponsors a $500 scholarship each year as well. This year’s recipient is Corinna Joy Ensley of Back Bay Crescent. She graduated from Kellam High School and will attend James Madison University.
We are all in very good hands with these Sandbridgers going off to lead the world!
