Founded through Mrs. Cornpropst’s estate provisions for students attending Frederick Community College who are preparing for a career in public education.
The late Mattie Henderson Cornpropst made estate provisions to establish The Harry and Mattie Cornpropst Scholarship Fund, which will provide scholarships for students attending Frederick Community College who are preparing for a career in public education. Mattie, who lived to be 100 years old, moved to Frederick County after graduating from Salisbury State College (now Salisbury University). She married Harry Cornpropst and spent the remainder of her life in Frederick County. Her career as a fourth grade teacher spanned 36 years with Frederick County Public Schools, and included North Market Street School, New Market Elementary School, and Elm Street School.
