RMA student earns scholarship
Will Adams
Rising senior Will Adams, son of Randy and Sally Adams, has been awarded the Robert F. Sykes, Jr., Scholarship at Rocky Mount Academy.  This scholarship is awarded annually to an Upper School student at RMA who exhibits a potential for math excellence.  The scholarship, valued at $1000, was established in 1997 in memory of a beloved RMA math teacher and athletic coach, the late Bob Sykes.

Sykes Scholarship nominees were required to write an essay on an assigned topic relating to math.  Other criteria included their overall academic performance, particularly in math and science, and a demonstration of an interest in math through academic competitions, extracurricular activities and other channels. 

“We are glad to have this scholarship which gives us the opportunity to annually recognize one of our students for his or her talent in mathematics.  Will’s strong math ability has served him well in AP Calculus as well as AP Chemistry this year and, I suspect, will help him throughout his life.  We are happy that we can shine a spotlight on his achievement while making the point to our students that they are truly gaining knowledge now that they will use for years to come,” Head of School Beth Covolo commented.
