Emily Bevins, of Georgetown, Ky., is a member of the McConnell Scholar Class of 2024 at the University of Louisville. She plans to study political science, English and history.
Emily is a graduate of Great Crossing High School, where she was president of the school's National Beta chapter and vice president of the Great Crossing Young Republicans and East River Hunt Club. She was captain of the academic team and founder of the Mindfulness and Meditation Club. Emily, the daughter of Clint and Margaret Bevins, was a 2019 Governor's Scholar.
The McConnell Scholarship is worth so much more to me than a simple monetary award. Its true value lies within the community it has nurtured and grown. I eagerly look forward to intellectual and open conversations with my peers and mentors.
