Meet Carl Donnell, eighth grader at EL Mentor School Polaris Charter Academy in Chicago, IL, and recent recipient of the prestigious Daniel Murphy Scholarship! Selected as one of 100 awardees from an applicant pool of more than one thousand, Donnell will receive $100,000 in high school support from the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund.

“One of the things I appreciate most about Carl is he is very solutions oriented. He looks for opportunities to better the school community. He is the one who came to us and said he wants to be the mascot. He is the one who pushed to get Spirit Crew up and running. He is a true Explorer with incredible integrity and honestly represents the very best of our community.”
