Bel Air High School graduate Xuan Bui said she was really excited to learn she was selected as a recipient of a Jimmy Rane Foundation scholarship. It felt like her hard work of finding and completing scholarship applications had paid off, especially because the competition for scholarships has always seemed daunting to her.
Now Reaves’ dream is to attend Armstrong Atlantic State University to earn a degree in biology, then further her education in marine biology at the University of Georgia. She’ll have much-needed financial support, thanks to her selection as a Jimmy Rane Foundation scholarship recipient.
