In every senior class, there is a handful of dynamic leaders that sets the standard higher for the rest — in conduct and achievement, in the classroom and in extracurricular activities. They may be active in traditional activities such as student government, clubs, and the arts, or they may have ventured out into new or less established areas. In either case they have added to the positive spirit of our school and community. Their advice is sought, and you call on them to resolve issues. They get involved because they care about their community – not for selfish reasons.

These students may challenge you with their creativity and energy, but they excite and reward you as an educator. Without them, the senior class would have less luster. It is from this elite group we selected our top students to best represent RSHS who must demonstrate all of the following: Scholarship, Leadership, moral force of character, and physical vigor.

The Morehead-Cain was established in 1945 and modeled after the Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford University. The Morehead-Cain is the oldest, most prestigious merit scholarship program in the United States. It is a unique, fully-funded educational opportunity that includes an undergraduate scholarship to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, as well as a summer enrichment program offering a life-enhancing combination of global travel, research, and real-world work experience in public service and the private sector.

Morehead-Cain Scholars have access to support and advice from a dedicated Morehead-Cain advisor throughout their collegiate experience, and have the opportunity to interact with nearly 3,000 Morehead alumni who live and work around the globe.
