Morehead-Cain Scholars for 2007
to be announced Friday (March 9)

Winners of this year’s Morehead-Cain Scholarships to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will be announced Friday (March 9).

The full, four-year merit awards include four summer enrichment experiences and a laptop computer for each student.
