Susannah Owen '24 Morehead-Cain Scholar

The morning Carolina Day School senior Susannah Owen would find out if she had been awarded a UNC Chapel Hill Morehead-Cain Scholarship, she woke up with a plan. She wouldn’t find out the news until 5 p.m. that evening and, no matter the results, she wanted to enjoy her day. She started with a run before getting her nails done in the color Tarheel Blue as a reminder that she had already been accepted to Chapel Hill, its Honors College, and its Accelerated Research program. No matter what happened, she told herself, she had a lot to celebrate.
