Wor-Wic graduates receive Regent scholarships
August 12, 2014

Two Wor-Wic Community College graduates were recently selected for the University System of Maryland Regents Scholars Program.

Tiffany Biles of Willards and Silviya Gallo of Berlin, who both graduated from Wor-Wic with high honors, 4.0 grade point averages (GPAs) and associate of arts degrees in secondary education, were chosen to receive two-year full-tuition scholarships at their transfer institutions.

Biles will attend Towson University, where she will major in music education. Ultimately, she plans to receive her doctoral degree in music education and teach at the college level.

Gallo will attend Salisbury University, where she will major in mathematics secondary education. She plans to teach at a local middle or high school after graduating. Her long-term goal is to work at Wor-Wic as a professor in mathematics.

Regents Scholars are selected on the basis of demonstrated academic ability at a Maryland community college, as measured by completion of the associate of arts degree with a GPA of 4.0. Strong motivation, exceptional character and a record of extracurricular accomplishments are also selection factors.

Regents scholarship awards are renewed each year in which the student continues full-time study toward the baccalaureate degree and maintains at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA.
