Celebrating the Class of 2022!
Senior Honors Gala at The Winston-Salem Dash
On April 28, at the Winston-Salem Dash, we gathered in celebration of the achievements of Crosby Scholars seniors in our 29th graduating class at our Senior Honors Gala. It was a wonderful evening to celebrate the hard work, dedication and resilience of all our graduates and their families. Our seniors who are graduating from high school are among 11,000 students in the Crosby Scholars Program.
It was a celebration to remember with over 296 Crosby Scholars seniors in attendance with their family and friends! A few highlights:
- Board Chair Ginger Salt got the celebration started with a special welcome as the parent of a graduating Crosby Scholar!
- All attendees received a ballpark dinner, dessert and Crosby Scholars gave away three Off to College gift baskets valued at over $100 each. The celebration ended with a fireworks show against the backdrop of Downtown Winston-Salem.
Each scholar in attendance was recognized and received an honor cord for completing the Crosby Scholars Program. The Awards and Recognition Program also recognized several scholarship recipients, with $67,000 being awarded to the Class of 2022 to date.
- Superintendent Tricia McManus joined by Principal Ed Weiss from Mount Tabor High School and Director of Student Services, Stan Huck, presented the Michael Nachman Scholar Award to Oise Abhulimen of Mount Tabor High School. Oise will enroll at East Carolina University, where he move forward on his path to medical school.
- President and CEO Mona Lovett celebrated our 392 Executive Director Award of Distinction recipients, Crosby Scholars graduates who have been in the program from 6th-12th grade without interruption, and shared encouraging words for all Crosby Scholars to remember in their new adventures!

Class of 2022 Awards and Scholarship Recipients
The Crosby Scholars Community Partnership congratulates the Class of 2022 Awards and Scholarship recipients! These young leaders attend a public high school in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County and completed at least three years in the Crosby Scholars Program—and some as many as seven years. They make school a priority; volunteer in their community, and exhibit strong leadership qualities they gained by attending Crosby Scholars academies.
