Centre Fellow candidates must rank in the top 5% of the junior class, must be enrolled in a strong college preparatory curriculum, must have at least a 28 on the ACT, must exhibit outstanding citizenship in the school and community, and should possess a sincere interest in a liberal arts and sciences education. Wainscott was nominated by Paducah Tilghman High School.

Centre Fellows receive a $20,000 minimum guaranteed scholarship per year at Centre College. Centre Fellows are eligible for additional merit awards.

The Centre Fellows Scholarship Program’s aim is to recognize and reward some of the nation’s brightest, most involved young people.

Wainscott is a member of the National Honor Society, the Speech and Debate Team, the Student Council, the Chamber Choir, and is a staff writer for the Tilghman Bell. She competes on the varsity Academic Team and the Future Problem Solvers Team. In addition, she volunteers as a peer tutor at Tilghman and is a member of the Lourdes Hospital Teen Volunteer Program. She is the daughter of Jodi and Britton Wainscott.

“Emery’s choice to make academic achievement a priority has already caught the attention of one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country,” said School Counselor Rebecca Rogers. “With her excellent grades and stellar test scores, it’s no surprise that she is being courted by Centre College. She follows her passions and uses her strengths to benefit clubs and teams at Tilghman. Emery’s positive impact at school and in the community is certainly to be commended.”
