ANTILLES STUDENT WINS NATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP

Rodwell Arthur, a junior at Antilles School, has been selected as a State Bronze Winner and has received a $1,250 Discover Card Tribute Award Scholarship.
Arthur was selected out of 10,000 applicants from the U.S. and its territories. To win, students had to submit three letters of recommendation, maintain a minimum 2.75 grade point average and write an essay describing leadership abilities, obstacles overcome, unique endeavors and special talents.
Arthur, who is originally from Guyana, is a member of the National Honor Society and the varsity football and basketball teams.
In his scholarship essay, Arthur wrote his love and knowledge of computers. He also wrote about overcoming a knee problem that forced him to retire from organized sports activities and wear a brace from his hip to his ankle.
At Antilles, Arthur has worked closely with the school's computer network coordinator since ninth grade. Arthur has since built 23 computers from scratch and now plans to pursue a career in computer engineering or programming.
Arthur has been a student at Antilles School since second grade.
