September 23, 2015

The board of trustees at Wor-Wic Community College recently awarded scholarships to nine local high school graduates.

This year’s scholarship recipients include Kamrie Bateman of Parkside High School, Justin Benton of Washington High School, Hope Bowden of Pocomoke High School, Samantha Burton of Stephen Decatur High School, Alexandra Carroll of Wicomico High School, Jenna Drewer of Crisfield High School and Academy, Jessica Jenkins of James M. Bennett High School, Justin Jump of Snow Hill High School and Kenneth Kohlhoff of Mardela Middle and High School.

The board of trustees provides a two-year full-tuition scholarship for the most academically-talented high school senior applicant from each of the 10 public high schools and two of the four private high schools in Wicomico, Worcester and Somerset counties.

In order to qualify for the scholarship, applicants must have at least a 3.25 GPA on an unweighted 4.0 scale. They must also apply for admission to Wor-Wic before April 1 of their senior year in high school, as well as complete a board of trustees scholarship application form.

The scholarships are awarded to the applicant with the highest GPA from each school, followed by the highest total number of credits earned and the earliest admission application. Recipients must maintain a 3.0 GPA.

High school students interested in more information about the scholarship should call the college’s financial aid office at (410) 334-2905.
