Maxine Park won the Davidson Fellows $25,000 scholarship for her musical project: Why Journeys and Not Destinations: A Framework for Approaching Life's Goals where she used her piano skills to explore a philosophical approach to achievement that defines goals as journeys instead of destinations.

Her exploration of how to use commitment and communication to imbue goal setting and completion with meaning is reflected clearly in this project and the resultant award.

Miss Park currently attends the Phillips Exeter Academy and will go on to university studies focus on music and psychology in 2022.

The scholarship organization gives a variety of awards to students every year for their contributions toward STEM, literature, and music. Its focus is on opportunities for exceptionally intelligent and driven students who complete meaningful projects outside the scope of their curriculum studies. The Davidson Fellows scholarship is considered one of the most prestigious available in the country.
