The Apex Ambassadors Scholarship program was established to acknowledge outstanding Apex students from ages 5 to 19 years old by Miss Apex, Sydney McCoy. Over 10 boys and girls will be selected to receive the title. They will have the responsibility of representing our town for a full year as well as their sponsors, attending and volunteering at community events and starting a Unique Teen Job Fair. The Ambassadors will plan community fundraisers, obtain future sponsors and continue the scholarship program.
Sydney McCoy was awarded the title of Miss Apex in 2014. In 2012, June 2nd was proclaimed as "Sydney McCoy Day" by the former Apex Mayor, Keith Weatherly and she was also awarded the Apex Top Thinker Award in 2016. Wanting to leave a legacy in her home town, she decided to establish a scholarship program to tie in with her internship requirements for the Academy of Information Technology Program at Apex High School . Using her experience from numerous events, NC Spot Fish Scholarship and Pageant titles, she decided to give back to the community with the Apex Ambassadors Scholarship Program. Through her achievements and successes in life, she aims to show the new generation to follow their dreams and make a difference in their community.
