In addition to all of her extracurricular activities, Lillian works as a lifeguard at Forest Hills pool, and she works as a student counselor for Oxford Prep's Griffins Nest after school program.

The Morehead-Cain scholarship provides a four-year, fully-funded educational experience for exceptional student leaders at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Students are selected based on their proven excellence in four areas:

  • Leadership - demonstrated ability to influence, energize and inspire others to work together to make an impact. For the Morehead-Cain recipient, leadership is more than titles. Leadership is about courage and action.
  • Character - Courage, humility, integrity, maturity, perseverance, self-awareness, generosity, and empathy - these are the core values of the Morehead-Cain community. Morehead-Cain scholars embrace the fact that they are growing and learning.
  • Scholarship - A Morehead-Cain scholar thrives in an academically rigorous environment, yet is still able to contribute to their community in other ways.
  • Physical Vigor - Those who merit the Morehead-Cain value what is gained - collaboration, sportsmanship, discipline, stamina, and persistence - by preparing for and engaging in competitions and performances.

Congratulations, Lillian!
