LC-M students announced as Mirabeau Scholars

LITTLE CYPRESS — Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School is pleased to announce that seniors Jimmy “Trey” Mathis, Jacob Martin, Aaron McCoy, and Levi “Kent” Morris, were accepted into Lamar University’s Mirabeau Scholars Program.

Mirabeau Scholars receive a full four-year scholarship covering tuition, fees, room and board, and books. Applicants must be first-time-in-college freshmen with a minimum SAT score of 1250 or an ACT score of 28 and a record of demonstrated excellence in academics, leadership, service and/or creative endeavors.

According to Stephen Doblin, provost and vice president for academic affairs, “Mirabeau Scholars are held to a higher level of academic and extra-classroom performance because these students are among our best and brightest. Each scholarship carries a value of more than $75,000 over eight semesters of support and covers all expenses. Any scholarships or awards the student receives from sources independent of the university are applied to their account and used first, allowing students to use the Mirabeau funds for academic-related expenses such as research, study abroad, or extended learning with the approval of their department chair, college dean and the provost.”

Lamar University’s Mirabeau Scholars webpage says, “Scholars will enter Lamar University as participants in the University Honors Program and will be active in one or more of the following: Student Leadership (Leadership Lamar, Peer Advisors, Student Government, Lamar Ambassadors, etc.) and/or college or departmental undergraduate academic research or special programs. The students live in Lamar University’s Cardinal Village residence halls in community with other Honors Program members and university scholarship recipients.”

Dr. Terri Estes, principal at LCM HS says, “Lamar University requires that the recipients of the Mirabeau Scholar Program demonstrate excellence in academics, leadership, service and/or creative endeavors. These young men have certainly demonstrated these qualities. We are proud of each and every one of them. They are fine young men who have worked tirelessly to sharpen their academic skills and serve as leaders on our campus. To have so many students receive this award in one year is a wonderful testimony to their hard work and determination. They should each be commended on this great accomplishment.”
