Orange Bowl scholarship recipient shows classroom triumphs in the Muck | #schoolshooting

Glades Central will be without a familiar face this fall as defensive end Alcivial Henrisme takes his talents, along with a $10,000 scholarship, to four-time national champion Valdosta State in Georgia.

Henrisme exhibited “valor and courage in the face of adversity” and was selected for the Orange Bowl Beigel-Feis-Hixon Valor Award, a scholarship in honor of the three coaches — Scott Beigel, Aaron Feis and Chris Hixon — who lost their lives in the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in 2018. 

Orange Bowl Committee President and Chair Frank Gonzalez announced the honor in June. Only one other Palm Beach County student, Christopher Volpe of Jupiter High School, has been awarded the scholarship since its creation.

Glades Central's Alcivial Henrisme will be recognized during the 2022 Capital One Orange Bowl on Dec. 30 at Hard Rock Stadium as the recipient of the Beigel-Feis-Hixon Valor Award scholarship.

Henrisme competed with over 100 other applicants, all coming from backgrounds similar to his own.

“The process for applying for the Orange Bowl scholarship was a little nerve-wracking knowing that there were so many other students who were applying for it,” Henrisme said.

But Henrisme “felt good about it” because he knew his story was just as strong as his grades.

“The courage he has shown to overcome some of life’s toughest challenges and progress into a self-sufficient scholar-athlete and a role model for his peers on and off the field speaks to how well-deserving he is for this award and scholarship,” said Gonzalez.
