Wor-Wic Faculty Award Honors Scholarship
March 14, 2005

Liesel Booker of Salisbury, a full-time general studies student at Wor-Wic Community College, was selected to receive this year's $500 faculty honors scholarship.

Selection is based on scholastic achievement and an essay competition judged by the honors program committee at Wor-Wic.

Applicants were required to write a 500-word essay in response to a quote from an article called "Responsible Voting" by economist and author, Thomas Sowell. Booker¹s award-winning essay was called "The Danger of Voting."

Booker is currently enrolled in the honors program at the college, and is a member of Wor-Wic's Alpha Nu Omicron chapter of Phi Theta Kappa. She has maintained a 4.0 grade point average since entering the college in the fall of 2003.

She is also president of the student government association and a member of the chorus and the arts club. In 2004, Booker performed with the hip-hop dancers at Wor-Wic's annual variety show and had her writing published in the college's creative arts magazine, "Echoes and Visions." She is on the staff of the student newspaper, and enjoys writing, music and traveling.

After graduating from Wor-Wic in May, Booker plans to transfer to Salisbury University and major in English.
