Brown Scholars

The Brown Scholars are a select group of three to six Coastal Carolina University students who educate and mentor the students in the Each 1 Teach 1 Entrepreneurship Institute. The scholars are trained by the director and by the advisory board of the Each 1 Teach 1. The scholars deliver workshops on life and leadership skills during the summer programs and mentor the students at Conway High School who are in the program throughout the school year. Scholars are community leaders, enthusiastic educators and caring role models. If you wish to become a Brown Scholar, contact Christina Olivo at or 843-349-2655.
