Colonial Insurance Agency prides itself on not only serving the Hillsborough area but also giving back to the community. So beginning this year, Scott LaNier has decided to sponsor an annual $500 scholarship for local high school seniors that will be attending college next year, with the winner to be decided by a Turkey Call Contest.
We are excited to announce that the winner of the 2016 Turkey Call Scholarship is Jonathan Flynn. Jonathan is a senior from Orange High School who is considering a variety of schools to attend, with hopes of pursuing his love for baseball. He has been doing turkey calls his whole life, with his father, Jim Flynn, who is strongly involved with the NC chapter of the Nation Wild Turkey Federation. Jonathan says he prefers to use mouth calls the most. Besides turkey calling and hunting, Jonathan also enjoys spending his free time playing sports, mainly baseball and football. He played centerfield for his baseball team, and for football he was the defensive MVP and received the Coaches Award in 2015. Jonathan’s family has been in the Hillsborough area since 1995.
It is with great pleasure and pride that Colonial Insurance Agency awards this scholarship to such a deserving young member of our own community, and wishes Jonathan Flynn the best of luck as he further pursues his education, and more turkey calling!
