St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School senior Porter Neubauer will join the first-year class at Washington & Lee University in the fall with tuition, room and board covered, as well as up to $7,000 in additional support for special projects each summer.
Awarded to approximately 10 percent of each W&L entering class, students are chosen based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, and the potential to contribute to the intellectual and civic life of the W&L campus and the world.
Neubauer, the son of Alex and Amy Neubauer of Belvidere, has excelled in all of these areas at SAS as a high honors student, proctor, school ambassador and member of the Cum Laude Society.
He served as a student representative to the school’s curriculum committee, is a member of the varsity boys soccer team and is an Eagle Scout.
He was formerly a member of the school’s varsity swim team and qualified for state competition as part of the school’s record-holding relay team for the 200-meter freestyle.
He took advantage of the SAS option to take courses for free and for credit at the University of the South, enrolling in creative writing poetry and principles of chemistry.
