UNC fencer Carly Wooten earns award
CHAPEL HILL Carly Wooten, a senior on the North Carolina fencing team, was announced Saturday afternoon as the recipient of the 2016 Wells Fargo Postgraduate Scholarship, a $10,000 grant presented annually to a UNC senior student-athlete who is attending graduate school.
The Wells Fargo announcement was part of the Rams Club’s Endowed Scholarship Lunch, held at the Carolina Club.
Wooten, from Welcome, N.C., is set to enroll at the Wake Forest Master of Arts in Management program this fall.
Wooten, who attended North Davidson High School and will graduate from UNC in May, is working toward a double major in psychology and studio art. She carries a 3.93 grade point average and was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa honorary society last fall. In addition, she has taught art lessons at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center as an intern with the Arts for Life program.
In addition to the annual postgraduate scholarship, Wells Fargo also provides financial education for UNC student-athletes. All sophomores receive training designed help them make wise financial choices now and in the future.
