$100,000 pledge, The Bank of Ocean City.
The Bank of Ocean City recently made a $100,000 pledge in order to provide $20,000 each year for the next five years for Stephen Decatur High School students who enroll in approved dual enrollment courses at Wor-Wic Community College.
“It is important for local businesses to invest in the next generation of Worcester County’s workforce,” said Reid Tingle, president and CEO of the Bank of Ocean City. “We believe that education is one of the greatest investments a community can make. By investing in our young people, we’re making an investment in our future.”
Stephen Decatur high school students who are at least 16 years old and starting their junior or senior year in the fall can take advantage of dual enrollment courses at the college. The scholarship funds, which can be used for tuition and fees, will be awarded based on financial need and scholastic achievement.
Anyone interested should see their high school guidance counselor or contact Richard C. Webster, Wor-Wic’s director of early college initiatives, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-334-2896.
