Dorman Receives Wor-Wic Faculty Honors Scholarship
February 05, 2007

Nathan Dorman 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 pair of articles with opposing viewpoints about the U.S. immigration policy. Dorman’s award-winning essay was called “Citizens Versus Illegal Immigrants: A Disturbing Battle.”

After serving four years in the U.S. Marine Corps, Dorman registered at Wor-Wic in the spring of 2005. Dorman, who is enrolled in the honors program at the college and is a member of Wor-Wic’s Alpha Nu Omicron chapter of Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), has a 3.9 GPA average.

Dorman participated in a panel presentation at the Maryland Collegiate Honors Council’s (MCHC) 2006 annual conference, served as a discussion leader for four honors- and PTK-sponsored seminars and directed PTK-sponsored activities such as food, book and blanket drives.

In addition to serving as vice president of leadership for PTK, Dorman is also a two-year college student representative on the MCHC executive board.

Scheduled to graduate from Wor-Wic in May of 2007, Dorman plans to transfer to Salisbury University to pursue dual bachelor’s degrees in exercise science and philosophy. He also plans to seek a master’s degree in political philosophy while working as a personal trainer.

According to Dorman, he would like to turn his hobby of researching political propaganda and government corruption into a career with a libertarian think-tank.

Dorman is the son of Paul and Annette Dorman of East New Market. His younger sister, Miriam, is currently enrolled at Wor-Wic as a science transfer student, and his older sister, Andrea, graduated from Wor-Wic in 2000 with a general studies degree.
