Mallory Jones wins 2018 Lett Scholarship
Cape Henlopen High School’s Mallory Jones won the 2018 Stephen R. Lett Scholarship, and will soon head to Pennsylvania State University’s Happy Valley.
The 2018 graduate was a three-sport athlete at Cape, in lacrosse, basketball, and volleyball. Her 3.9 GPA ranked her 30thin the class of 317. Hoping for a medical career, Jones has interned at the Beebe Hospital Emergency Department. The scholarship awards $2,500 per year for four years.
The Lett Scholarship Fund is now in its tenth year, and honors a longtime president of Kings Creek Country Club. The primary fundraiser is a golf tournament, held this time on July 27 in what turned out to be terrible weather conditions. Multiple stoppages for lightning and driving rain eventually called a halt to the event, with some teams having only completed eight holes.
Using available scores, Brian Simmons, Tom Clayton, Nick Nardo, Jr., and Keenan Charles won first place gross on a match of cards. Mike McGrath, Nick Nardo, Sr., John Purple, Sr., and David Spilman won first place net.
Nominees for the scholarship can be obtained from members or employees of Kings Creek CC. Potential winners need not be Delawareans or otherwise affiliated with the club. An independent selection committee selects the recipients from those demonstrating leadership, academic discipline, and community awareness.
