Avery Elbin, a senior at Gautier High School, won a $1,000 scholarship to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College as part of a drawing at the 2017 MGCCC President’s Breakfast held on November 30 at the college’s Hospitality and Resort Management Center in Biloxi.
Elbin was one of almost 50 students and their families attending the event. Each student was entered into the drawing. A dual-enrolled student at MGCCC, Elbin is enrolling at the college in fall 2018.
The President’s Breakfast is an annual event geared toward academically gifted high school seniors. The Bacot McCarty Foundation and its executive director, Todd Trenchard, provided the scholarship.
