Education Extra Scholarship Luke Love Recipient
Luke Love accepted a $1000 scholarship, accompanied by his mother and officers and scholarship committee members of the Republican Women of North Shelby County.

The Republican Women of North Shelby County (RWNSC) recently awarded its first-ever college scholarship to Luke Love, a graduate of Oak Mountain High School. The $1,000 scholarship has been paid directly to the University of South Alabama where Luke will be a freshman this fall to pursue a career as an orthopedic surgeon. The son of two educators, integrity has been a hallmark of his upbringing. Honesty and a strong sense of morality that accompanies the education of youth has been instilled in Luke not only by his teachers at Oak Mountain, but also by his parents at home. His father Chris is the head basketball coach at Oak Mountain High School and his mother Sarah is an AP English teacher. Luke’s academic achievements are not his only successes. He also played in the marching band at Oak Mountain and will be a member of the band at USA. Luke stated that “I have felt no greater sense of citizenship or patriotism than when playing our nation’s national anthem before Friday night football games.”

Susan Schwartz, AP US Government and Politics teacher at Oak Mountain was honored to recommend Luke for the RWNSC 2020 Scholarship. “Luke is an example of a future Republican Party leader. He is quick to demonstrate his core values that match the core values of leaders serving others, not themselves or special interests. Luke loves his country and believes that American is exceptional and is a world leader. Luke is kind, compassionate, but firm in these beliefs.”

Essays were judged by educators, who unanimously selected Luke Love because of his outstanding academic and extra-curricular achievements at Oak Mountain. The scholarship was established as a way for the Republican Women to give back to the community. They worked diligently to create a program to benefit students who have shown exemplary commitment to excelling academically while maintaining involvement with their communities and showing tremendous leadership skills. †
