Caroline Wyrick '21 Named Bill Lee Scholarship Recipient for 2021
The Greensboro Sports Council announced the four Greensboro high school seniors who have been named recipients of the Bill Lee Scholarship for 2021. The Greensboro Sports Council began awarding these scholarships during its annual high school basketball tournament in 2001.
One of the four recipients is Caroline Wyrick ‘21. Caroline is a Greensboro Day School senior, an all-conference player, 2020 recipient of the coach’s award for volleyball, and a two-sport student-athlete leading both the basketball and volleyball teams. She is a member of the senior student council, the National Honor Society, Philosophy Club, and the Gender Sexuality Alliance. Caroline is the founder and president of the Ambassador’s Club, a student-run group that welcomes new and visiting students to the GDS campus. She has 200 volunteer hours, and received the Citizenship Award as a sophomore, voted on by her classmates. Caroline plans to attend Roanoke College and is currently considering a career as a math or statistics teacher or basketball coach.
The Bill Lee Scholarship is awarded to four HAECO Invitational participants each year. All eight participating schools are invited to nominate student-athletes; winners are the most qualified applicants regardless of which school they represent. 81 student-athletes have won the Bill Lee Scholarship since the program’s inception.
Despite canceling the 2020 HAECO Invitational due to COVID-19, the Greensboro Sports Council is contributing $32,500 to the Greensboro community on the strength of its membership donations. The 45th HAECO Invitational is scheduled for Dec. 27-29, 2021, at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center.
