10 AM Main event: Meet the HGP Scholarship winners.
“Meet our Scholarship Winners!” Sunday program will be the reading of essays and conversations with HGP’s 2013 Scholarship Essay Contest winners.The four students who wrote winning essays on “Why I am a Secular Humanist” are: Zachary Stark, Alex Summers, Elise Brown, and Samantha Clute.These young people are taking time out of their busy college preparations to meet us and share a little about their experiences as young humanists and their expectations for the future. Their planned majors are engineering/math; molecular biology/scientific researcher; political science/journalism/television; and bioethics/medical school. The future looks promising with such freethinking young individuals headed to college and to fill their eventual roles in our world!
