The People Behind the Scholarships

Last month, you may have seen our list of 2020-2021 scholarship recipients announced in The Frederick News-Post. We awarded $1.8 million in scholarships to 392 students to help them pursue their postsecondary educational goals. Over the years, we have watched our scholarship recipients become doctors, nurses, and enter many areas of health care. We have helped create engineers, veterinarians, scientists, elementary, middle, and high school teachers, social workers, agri-business and farming specialists, accountants, psychologists, professional musicians and artists, and more. But you might be wondering, who makes all of these scholarships possible?
