University Liggett School announces 2020-21 recipient of the Nicole Marie Shammas Memorial Scholarship 10/16/2020

Natalie Green ‘27 is the 2020-2021 recipient of the Nicole Marie Shammas Memorial Scholarship at University Liggett School.

The scholarship is awarded each year to a sixth-grade student for the three years of Middle School (6-8th grade).

Recipients must show an interest in the arts and academic promise. Natalie, who is new to ULS this year, said her favorite subjects are math and science and she’s especially excited to have Mr. Bandos for science this year.

The scholarship is part of the school’s endowment program and is made possible by a gift from the Shammas family of Grosse Pointe Woods and others who knew Nicole. Nicole passed away while in Middle School in 1986.

“For more than 30 years, this scholarship has helped many talented Middle School students enjoy a University Liggett School education,” said Stephanie Sikora, director of enrollment management.
“We are grateful for the Shammas family’s continued and generous support, said Cressie Boggs, director of development and alumni relations. “We are proud that this scholarship helps to keep Nicole’s memory alive throughout our school community while supporting some of our brightest middle school students.”

Students also receiving the scholarship this year are seventh-grader, Zaire Polk, and eighth-grader Shadé Patrick.
