As a tribute to her dedication to rural healthcare, excellence in programming, and desire to mentor and lead teens, the Rural Medical Scholars Bonnie Carew Spirit of Excellence Award was instated in 2016 upon her retirement from Mississippi State University.

The scholar chosen for this award is judged on the following attributes: consistent display of compassion, inclusion, kindness, healthy habits, trustworthiness, responsiveness and for being a model Rural Medical Scholar.
