Graylyn Welcomes 2013 Graylyn Scholar!

Graylyn welcomes its new Graylyn Scholar for the 2013 academic year, Paulomi Banerjee! Paulomi is a native of Cherry Hill, N.J., and attended Cherry Hill High East.

Begun in 1990, the Graylyn Scholarship is offered to one student each year and recognizes leadership and academic excellence, with funding provided by and in recognition of the Graylyn International Conference Center of Wake Forest University.

"I was very excited to be chosen for this scholarship," Paulomi said. "But when I realized there was only one person picked to be the Graylyn Scholar I was even more honored."

As a senior in high school, Paulomi served as class president. While it was difficult balancing both the duty of class president along with her academics, she said that she really enjoyed planning events including prom, school dances and homecoming. 

Paulomi's major is currently undecided, but she is leaning towards math and economics. She said she will also be getting into more clubs and extracurriculars as the year goes on but is enjoying her time just being a college freshman. 

Congratulations Paulomi, and welcome to the Graylyn family!
