PAGE SENIORS EARN $21,711,352 IN HIGHER EDUCATION SCHOLARSHPS!!!
The Class of 2014 has earned the highest scholarship totals in the history of Page, which is also the highest totals for all of Guilford County Schools!
The breakdown is as follows: Academic $9.3 million, Athletic $9.7 million, Grants and Work Study $2.1 million, for a combined total of $21,711,352 in financial assistance to succeed at the next level of education. This total includes many “full academic rides” to colleges such as Vanderbilt, Clemson, North Carolina A&T, and Winston-Salem State, to name a few. Our three National Merit Finalists received many offers of full tuition from colleges all over the country. We had a winner of the prestigious Aubrey Lee Brooks Scholarship to Chapel Hill, as well as an Army ROTC scholarship to UNC Charlotte. Our outstanding athletic program was also recognized nationally, with many “full-ride” offers to Division 1 schools. The two accepted were to Vanderbilt (Paris Kea) and Florida State University (Lorenzo Featherston).
The entire Page community can share in this great accomplishment! Congratulations to all of our award-winning Pirates of the Class of 2014!
The summer of 2002 was when my family and other Montagnards families arrived in Greensboro, North Carolina. We were refugees from Vietnam, leaving due persecutions, like our Christian belief. We had hope and belief that we could have a better life and ran off with it. June, 2002, was a time of adjustment and learning. Likewise, this summer, 2013, will be a similar time as I will be preparing to head off to the University of North Carolina-Wilmington for college. I will be leaving home for the first time and will be expose to a new city and new people.
College was never something that was planned in my family; however attending Page high school for those four years has really opened my eyes to furthering my education. The teachers, counselors and students at Page have always been supportive. It was great to be in an environment where the focus was not only education but bettering the students so that they can be prepared for the future. I was exposed to many advance courses and clubs, which allowed for me to challenge myself and make long-lasting friendship. I am and will always be eternally grateful for what Page has done for me to lead me to college.
Attending the Alumni meeting was an awe-inspiring experience. Listening on to some of the things that the Alumni committee is doing for Page just makes me proud and appreciative to be a Pirate! I am grateful for the Page Alumni and Friends Scholarship. One day, I hope to be a member of the committee and contribute to improving Page as all of the alumni are doing.

When taking a stroll down the hallways at Page High School, one comes into contact with a wide variety of people – people of different races, cultures, and socioeconomic status. Similar to the way America originated, Page could be described as a melting pot – a wonderful mixture of diversity. Unlike many of the local high schools, Page paints an accurate picture of the people of the world. Student Resource Officer Aaron Griffiths noted, “Page is a very diverse school…which brings in all of the cultures. [Students] get a broad view of things, instead of just seeing people of your own sex and race. It makes you more well-rounded; if you’re not around diversity, then you really limit yourself.”
Because of the numerous cultures represented at Page High School, each student is unique. It is a place where students can express themselves in their everyday choices. With everything from the clothes they wear, to the clubs they join, Page Pirates are free to let their differences shine. Junior Hannah Talton said, “At Page, I feel every person, no matter the race, has an equal opportunity for an education, and no one is treated differently…[everyone] can be his or her own person at Page.”
Although Page is a combination of distinct cultures, races, and socioeconomic groups, a common denominator binds us together. We are all Pirates. Despite the characteristics, which make us different, we are able to come together as one school, one community. We all have strengths and weaknesses, triumphs and struggles. Various cliques and pre-conceived ideas about each other may separate us, but in the end, we are all equal. When asked about the diversity at Page, Junior Haneen Abul-Fadl commented, “Before you enter Page, you’d probably be pretty firm in your stereotypes about people of different backgrounds. But since you have people from all those backgrounds right in front of you, you gain a new perspective, eliminating those stereotypes.” So, Pirates, take a look around and appreciate the
