As promised, we have the winners from the THINK BIG contest last night at the Maryland Awards Banquet. After counting and recounting the winners are Joseph Noszek and Samuel Newmier! Congratulations!
It seems that they teamed up and thought BIG! Together, they correctly identified 27 out of 46 THINK BIG names.
Joseph Noszek is a 2012 Carson Scholar from Delaware. Samuel Newmier is a three-time Carson Scholar from Maryland.
Dr. Ben Carson recently stopped by Jefferson Elementary in Houston to check in on the progress of their Ben Carson Reading Room. The reading room is scheduled to open in May and students are already excited with the progress.
The Carson Scholars Fund has been extremely busy! This weekend we celebrated three Awards Banquets.
Dr. and Mrs. Carson attended all three events. On Friday, Battle Creek kicked off the weekend celebrating its 10th Annual Awards Ceremony. Saturday, Chicago had its very first Awards Banquet. And Sunday, Pittsburgh held its 8th Annual Awards Banquet, which was its largest yet!
Sixth grader Will Templin learned how vital his help could be to others.
Just last year, Will coordinated his first project to those devastated in the tsunami in Japan. Will raised over $1,500 selling chopsticks and collecting donations at his school in Pittsburgh.
The two-time Carson Scholar didn’t stop there.
When Will learned about a tornado that struck the town of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, he held bake sales and collected donations, raising over $2,000 that helped a family who lost everything get back into a home.
Over the weekend, Dr. Ben Carson’s book America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great was featured on C-SPAN.
Dr. Carson delivered the keynote speech at the 18th Annual Blackburn Institute Winter Symposium hosted by the University of Alabama. He discussed various topics from his New York Times Bestseller book such as America’s social and political climate, his personal philosophy, and overcoming obstacles.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Belgium Tom Korologos and Former Secretary of Labor Ann Korologos hosted a special event celebrating Dr. Ben Carson’s newest release America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great last Thursday.
