Student Success

Meet Eric Maxwell

March 11, 2019 /  Maura D

In June, the Foundation presented an award to outstanding Mustangs Matter student Eric Maxwell, pictured here with his family.  When he joined Mustangs Matter, Eric explained that he wanted to develop his leadership skills and he has actively worked toward that goal.  He was instrumental in a carnation sale fundraiser to support Myers Park's Best Buddies Club.  He was a little shy at first as he approached groups of students on campus to promote the effort, but became more comfortable and was key to the fundraiser's success.  Eric has challenged himself academically, enrolling in honors classes for the first time, while also working hard to face several personal challenges.  Eric will be one to watch as he continues his high school career, and serves as a role model for other Mustangs Matter students.
