Two Academy of Moore County students recently received Masonic Merit Awards. Since 2018, The Academy of Moore County and Roman Eagle Masonic Lodge #550 have established a Masonic Merit Scholarship to recognize fourth and fifth-graders who have demonstrated academic progress during a term.
There are eight winners per year, two per term, sharing the prizes.
On July 7, respecting the guidelines of COVID-19, the organizations assembled under “The Pavilion” of the Academy. Grace Poindexter and Yazmine Wilson were the happy winners of the fourth period.
