The Megan Rose Carroll Scholarship was established in Megan’s memory by her guardians, Virginia and David Mann of Hamilton, Georgia. The scholarship provides a one-time scholarship each year to a female graduating senior from Harris County High School who characterizes Megan’s attributes and ambitions.
Megan was born October 30, 1999, in Philadelphia, PA. She moved to Hamilton, GA, in July 2013 following the death of her parents, Richard Gerard Carroll and Laurie Kunkel Carroll. Despite the tragedy of losing both parents before the age of fourteen and relocating to a new city under the care of her aunt and uncle, Virginia and David Mann, Megan was always up for a challenge and mastered anything she put her mind to. She was a sophomore at Harris County High School where she was an honor student and a member of both the Technology Student Association and the newly established Video Game and Design Club when she passed away suddenly on March 22, 2016. Megan had a strong sense of self, was a voracious reader, and had an exceptional talent for painting pictures with her words.
Through this scholarship, Megan will achieve her own words, “If I can’t find a way back, I’ll find a way forward,” by assisting young women in pursuit of their college educations.
