Two Chalmette High Seniors Receive Posse Scholarship

Since 2011, the Posse Foundation has awarded $34.2 million in scholarship money to high school scholars in the greater New Orleans area. The highly competitive scholarships are given to only 40 area seniors each year and award four-year, full tuition, merit-based leadership scholarships to the recipients.

This year, Chalmette High School is home to two of these outstanding students. Graduating seniors Hailey Abrams and Brian Williams will join the ranks of a handful of other CHS alumni who have previously been recognized as Posse scholars.

“Currently, we have 9 Chalmette High students who have won Posse Scholarships,” David Bellard, an English teacher and the Posse scholarship coordinator at CHS said. “We have had at least one student each of the past 5 years win a four-year, full tuition scholarship to one of the Posse New Orleans partner institutions - Illinois Wesleyan University, Case Western Reserve University, Tulane University, and the University of Notre Dame.”
