Pinewood Prep announced its first group of graduating seniors to accept college scholarship offerings: Logan Dwyer, attending Middlebury College; Cody Lewis, attending Charleston Southern University; and Evan Schwartz, playing basketball for Erskine College.
Dwyer came to Pinewood in 10th grade. After gaining complete fluency in Spanish, he worked independently to master Russian, leading to acceptance in a summer aboard program in Russia with the National Security Language Initiative for Youth. Dwyer was just named a U. S. Presidential Scholar, one of only two in the state. Dwyer has been instrumental in Pinewood’s Upper School Chorus, Honor Council and its State Championship High School Quiz Bowl Team. He plans to continue his study of languages at Middlebury College.
Lewis is a student athlete, and was integral to the school’s baseball team earning a state championship. His commitment to high performance helped him excel in challenging courses such as AP European History and Government. He is considered a team player and role model. Lewis has accepted a scholarship to attend Charleston Southern University.
Schwartz entered Pinewood in his freshman year. His strong character and work ethic helped him achieve high marks in coursework, while involvement in organizations such as the 4-H Club and Palmetto Boys’ State provided opportunities for him to develop as a leader. Schwartz is strong academically, mastering both English and math. He plays both football and basketball for the Panthers.
He worked to achieve his goal of playing basketball at the college level, and has accepted an offer to play basketball at Erskine College.
