South Caldwell’s Austin Earns NCHSAA Willie Bradshaw Memorial Endowed Scholarship

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has announced the winners of the Willie Bradshaw Memorial Endowed Scholarship for 2021-2022. The Willie Bradshaw Endowed Scholarship provides $750 of scholarship support to selected outstanding Black African American, Native American, Alaska Native, Asian American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, or Hispanic American student-athletes participating on a sanctioned varsity team at an NCHSAA member school.

Madison Austin is a senior at South Caldwell High School where she played varsity soccer for four years and was a member of the varsity cross country team for two years. Austin will be an Honors Graduate and will receive the North Carolina Scholar Award at graduation. She has been a member of the Beta Club throughout her high school years and helped deliver meals at Christmas time through the Poovey’s Chapel Youth Group. Austin will pursue her goal of becoming a physical therapist at North Carolina State University or Appalachian State University. In a potion from Austin’s scholarship entry, she said, “I have created so many memories and lifelong values that I otherwise would never have, without participating in sports. My teammates taught me the importance of understanding how to work together.”
