HUDSON – A Hudson student recently won $30,000 as part of a scholarship to support her studies at the University of Dallas. 

Megan Scott was identified as a Sumners Scholar by the Texas-based Sumners Foundation.

The foundation selects its scholarship recipients based on academic excellence, civic engagement, and a capacity for leadership, as noted in a press release.

Scott is one of 43 students nationally to receive a Sumners scholarship in 2022.  

“The Sumners Scholarship is a very prestigious scholarship,” Sumners Chairman Jerry Reis said in a press release. “Sumners Scholars have made significant contributions to their communities, state and country. Following in the footsteps of Congressman Hatton W. Sumners, we are pleased to support students working to improve the political system, address issues through public policy, educate others about civic responsibility, and be active, productive members of society.”

Scott is a 2019 graduate of the Advanced Math and Science Academy in Marlborough. She is currently a sophomore at the University of Dallas, where she is majoring in politics and art, as noted on a biography page on the university website.
