Students from Pinnacle Classical Academy Named CLC Junior Scholars

By News
Congratulations to William Brooks and Hannah Clontz, both rising 11th graders at Pinnacle Classical Academy, a Coalition member school. William and Hannah have been named Junior Scholars by Classical Liberals in the Carolinas (CLC). CLC is an organization composed of scholars and business leaders, and it seeks to “cultivate the ideas of individual liberty, responsibility, equality before the law, in keeping with the American founding and the classical liberal tradition,” according to its mission.

Here’s an excerpt from Pinnacle’s press release:

The students were named CLC Junior Scholars in honor of Dr. Michael C. Munger, the recipient of the inaugural John A. Allison IV Award, given annually by CLC and Pinnacle Classical Academy’s Classical Foundations Program. Dr. Munger is Professor of Political Science and Director of the Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program at Duke University. Brooks and Clontz were honored on August 4 at CLC’s annual conference, as was Dr. Munger.

“We are so proud of William and Hannah, and deeply grateful to CLC for recognizing our students’ hard work,” said Dr. Shelly Shope, the school’s headmaster.
