ALBANY — Deerfield-Windsor School has released the names of its annual Honors and Cannon Family Scholarships winners.

Deerfield Advancement Director Laurie Allen announced that Garrett Smith and Austin Cain are the newest recipients of the DWS Honor Scholarship.

These scholarships are awarded each year to two exceptional students not currently enrolled at Deerfield — one entering the sixth grade and one entering the ninth or tenth grade in the coming fall.

The Middle School Honor Scholarship awarded to Garrett Smith will cover tuition costs for his three years of Middle School (sixth, seventh, and eighth grades) at the school.

Garrett, a fifth grader currently enrolled at Lee County Elementary, is the son of Anita and Mark Smith. His father is a 1989 graduate of Deerfield.

The High School Honor Scholarship has been awarded to Austin Cain, a current ninth grader at Lee County High School, and will cover tuition for 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.

Austin is the son of Amy and James Cain Jr. of Leesburg.

Amy Rao and Proctor Johnston are the recipients of the Cannon Family Scholarships.

The Cannon Family Scholarships are awarded each year to two exceptional students currently enrolled at Deerfield-Windsor as freshmen, sophomores, or juniors.

The Promise Scholarship is designed to cover half the tuition costs of the recipient in the coming school year.

Academic performance is the primary determinant of the award, with consideration also given to extracurricular activities and submission of an essay.

Amy is the daughter or Debra Moon and Dr. Ramana Rao. She is a Mensa member and plans on attending Washington and Lee University and would like to become a radiologist.

Proctor is the son of Beth and Morgan Johnston. He is a member of the varsity football and track teams and hopes to attend Mercer University. Proctor would like to become a radiologist and hopefully one day play on one of that school’s first football teams.
