An outstanding 2014 high school graduate who wants to become an emergency room surgeon is one of the five recipients of the $1,000 scholarships offered to Bay Area high school graduates this year by Ron Carter Clear Lake Cadillac Hyundai.

She is Caroline Davies of Pasadena, who graduated with a 4.02 grade point average.

Next stop is Baylor University, where she will major in medical humanities as she prepares to apply to attend medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.

While being home schooled she took dual credit classes at San Jacinto College for the past two years and already has 55 transfer hours, meaning she can graduate from Baylor early.

“I strive to do my best in whatever I pursue. I have held a job for almost six years now to help me afford a better education at Baylor,” she explains.

She has been inducted into two honor societies and participated in many extracurricular activities such as piano, choir and band while also doing volunteer work.
