KCHS’ Atrevion Wilson applauded as one of Maryland’s emerging scholars

BALTIMORE — Kent County High School junior Atrevion Wilson is one of 24 recipients of a Maryland’s Emerging Scholars Award for outstanding achievements in compassion initiatives, leadership and academic success.

Award recipients were selected from a competitive pool of candidates based on their remarkable contributions to their communities, exemplary leadership within their schools and exceptional academic performance.

“We are thrilled to honor these remarkable young individuals who have demonstrated exceptional dedication to making a positive impact in their communities. Their commitment to service, leadership and academic excellence serves as an inspiration to us all,” Sharon Markley Schreiber, MBRT’s executive director, said in a news release.

Kent County High School’s Wilson and the other award recipients were recognized at a reception in Annapolis on March 13, following MBRT’s signature Youth Congress Day. The annual event brought together students, educators, government and business leaders to celebrate the achievements of Maryland’s youth and to discuss the future of education and workforce development in the state.

“Atrevion is one of the kindest humans I’ve encountered,” Aundra Anderson, the Next Generation Scholars program manager for KCHS, told The Evening Enterprise. She works closely with the Maryland Business Roundtable for Education.

Wilson plans to pursue a career in engineering/design, according to Anderson.

He will be the Kent County student ambassador to the Maryland Business Roundtable for Education for the 2024-25 academic year, representing his peers at Industry Day, MBRT board meetings, Youth Congress Day and more.
