Carolinas’ Carrousel, Inc. instituted its Carrousel Queens Scholarship Program
to recognize outstanding students in the region. Each area high school was
invited to select a senior girl to represent the school and compete for the
college scholarships offered by the Carolinas’ Carrousel.
That program continues today as the Carrousel Scholarship Program. Scholarships are awarded to the top Carrousel Scholar and four Runners-Up. The program grants the Bill and Mary Ann York Community Service Award and partners with some local colleges that offer scholarships to our Carrousel Representatives.
The 2011 Carrousel Representatives were selected by 58 area high schools. The 2011 Carrousel Scholarship Winners were announced on Wednesday evening, November 23, at the Charlotte Marriott City Center.
All of the Carrousel reps also participated in many exciting activities, culminating in the traditional ride in the Belk Carolinas' Carrousel Parade.
In 1998, the Marching Band Scholarship Program was added, offering scholarships to band members with matching awards to the student’s high school. The Robert L. Maddox Music Scholarship was established in 2000 to honor Dr. Maddox’s exemplary leadership in music education in Charlotte.
