The EverLaith Foundation was created to continue the legacy of Shariq Laith Haider through his alma mater, St. Benedict's Episcopal School. The scholarship is awarded annually to two students who exemplify outstanding character and integrity through their work of community involvement, academics, and strong values through school and athletics.
"Our objective with the scholarships is to encourage the winners and runners-up to employ these values and kindness to make a difference and positively influence others," stated Ferhana Haider, EverLaith Foundation. "It is also EverLaith Foundation's way of supporting St. Benedict's mission of fostering an environment of educational attainment and service to the larger community."
The scholarship runners-up are Anna Grace Mansfield and Chase Watson. Runners-up of the 2021-22 EverLaith Scholarship Award will receive a certificate of achievement and a thank you gift.
