The board of trustees at Wor-Wic Community College recently recognized the recipients of scholarships awarded to local high school graduates.
This year's scholarship recipients include Mikayla Cantine from Stephen Decatur High School, Shelby Cullen from Crisfield High School, Audrey Ingersoll from James M. Bennett High School, Tobias Kuykendall from Wicomico High School, Hannah Petrey from Salisbury Christian School, Abigail Shockley from Mardela High School, Camryn Tracy from Parkside High School, Andrew Truitt from Snow Hill High School and Carley Walston from Washington 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.
