  • Forceful and unselfish character
  • Intellectual and personal vigor
  • Academic achievement
  • Leadership in both school and community activities

2024 Weaver Recipient


Chloe Marie Agan, daughter of Jeff and Erin Agan, has been awarded this year’s Ann MacPherson Weaver Memorial Scholarship at Rocky Mount Academy.  Currently an eight grader at Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Agan will attend RMA in the fall on a full-tuition scholarship, valued at approximately $62,000 over four years.

The Weaver Scholarship was established at Rocky Mount Academy in 1986 in memory of a 1984 RMA graduate who had lost her life to cancer earlier that year.  The scholarship is awarded to a deserving student who has never attended RMA and who best represents the attributes that Ann Weaver embodied. Each year in March, the Ann Weaver Scholarship application process brings the Rocky Mount Academy community the opportunity to meet and get to know some of the most talented high school students in the area.  This year was no exception.  

Agan is a straight A student at OLPH where she is also President of the St. Thomas Aquinas Honor Society. She has played soccer for over 12 years and has participated in a variety of dance arts for 10 years. Her interest in the arts has inspired her passion for clogging, jazz, theater, and singing, as well. When not engaged in her studies and extracurriculars, Chloe volunteers at school with an early care program and in the Rocky Mount community. Her dedication in the classroom, on the fields and courts, and in the community have made her a standout among her peers.

Head of School, Beth Murphy, described Chloe’s selection as the 2024 Weaver Scholar as just the beginning of her story:  “Over many years now, we have been fortunate to welcome talented students who have gone on to make a tremendous and lasting impact on our school as Ann Weaver Scholars. The standards for potential Weaver candidates are very high, and selection is not based on academic success alone. A Weaver Scholar is also someone who is a leader and one who will choose true engagement over participation in any of the opportunities our school affords. Chloe’s exemplary academic record and a genuine desire to learn, to grow, and to lead will make her a very successful student at RMA as a Weaver Scholar. Her achievements and future goals are the perfect match for our school’s mission to prepare students for success in life and college, and we could not be more excited to welcome her to RMA in the fall.”

William Roeder, Chairman of the Ann Weaver Scholarship Committee, reflected on this year’s scholarship process: "As this was my first year chairing the committee, I was not sure what to expect from the applicants.  I was blown away by the quality and depth of this year's Ann Weaver Scholarship applicant pool.  Rocky Mount is very fortunate to have such outstanding young people making a difference in our community.  While these decisions are almost always difficult, Chloe Agan's achievements to date, and her focus on giving back, made her an ideal fit with the Ann Weaver Scholarship criteria.  I am excited to welcome her and her family to Rocky Mount Academy."

Founded in 1968, Rocky Mount Academy is the largest non-sectarian independent school in the Nash/Edgecombe/Wilson area and serves PK-12th grade students.
