Southeast High School, 2021
Activities and Interests:
Hendrix Lovett of Southeast High School was given the opportunity to be a finalist for the 2021 Timothy P. O’Shaughnessy Lifelong Learning Scholarship. His parents are Jennifer and Kurtt Lovett.
Hendrix plans to study naval architecture while additionally pursuing creative writing. He hopes to leave a positive footprint in marine ecology through engineering green merchant ships. While he loves science, he greatly enjoys the juxtaposition of math and the humanities, and the applicability of abstract ideas.
In Maine, Hendrix is a sailing instructor for Big Tree Boating and has competed in several regattas. Furthermore, he works as a part time deckhand on America’s last steam yacht Cangarda. He also spent a summer learning and interning at Islesboro Marine Enterprises.
In Wichita, Hendrix is a part of the Plymouth Congregational Youth Group as well as Southeast’s varsity golf team, National Honor Society, AVID program, and the newly founded Math Buffs. He enjoys taking a diverse course load which allows him to maintain his academic curiosity. Additionally, he tutors for free during hours flexible for his peers. He loves being a part of the Southeast community which has allowed him to find the importance of a growth-based perspective.
Together, these activities have structured his fundamental principles of relationship building, academic curiosity, integrity, courage, and modesty. He plans to reinforce these ideas through language and intercontinental travel. As he continues to develop his passions, he is immeasurably grateful to be given the opportunities provided by the Timothy O’Shaughnessy Foundation.
