Coy Maddry Memorial Scholarship
Jackson Lehner receives scholarship
An outstanding student-athlete from Chapel Hill High School has been named the recipients of the 2019 Coy Maddry Memorial Scholarship Award from Orange United Methodist Church.
Jackson Lehner is this year's recipients and was recognized at worship services at Orange on Sunday, June 4. He received a grant of one thousand dollars from the church.
The scholarship comes from the fund established by family and friends in memory of Avery Coy Maddry, a 1990 graduate of Chapel Hill High School and a freshman at North Carolina State University at the time of his tragic death at the age of 18 on January 7, 1991. The fund is administered through Orange United Methodist Church, where Coy was an active member, and the award is in its 29th year.
Lehner played two years of varsity golf at Chapel Hill and was an outstanding student with a grade point average of 4.614, ranked 14th in a class of 365. President of the National Honor Society and vice-president of the National Spanish Honors Society, among other activities, he attended the North Carolina Governor’s School and also served as a research volunteer at the Benfey Laboratory at Duke University.
Lehner has been very active in community service and deeply involved with the YoungLife community at Chapel Hill. He will be attending Princeton University in the fall.
The scholarship candidates must be varsity athletic letterwinners at a Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools high school who best exemplify Coy's life through qualities he demonstrated: hard work and dedication, strong academics, and exemplary character and leadership as reflected in church, school and civic activities. Coaches and teachers nominate candidates for the honor.
