CMM Volunteer Council Announces 2018 Scholarship Winners

SOLOMONS, MD – June 21 – The Volunteer Council at the Calvert Marine Museum (CMM) is pleased to announce the 2018 scholarship recipients. The award presentation was held on Friday, June 15 at the Calvert Marine Museum. The Volunteer Council, led by President Ray Brule and Vice President Lowell Martin, gives incentives to young volunteer students pursuing higher education. Five $750 scholarships were awarded and presented by Squeak, CMM’s very own otter. The 2018 recipients are: Aimee Beardmore, Marisa Brock, Alyssa Brookhart, Whitney Jefferson, and Meghan Music. 

These young volunteers understand the importance of giving back to the community and CMM is proud to have them as members of its volunteer family. “Without a doubt, this scholarship will play a role in achieving my educational dreams. Because of your generosity, the financial challenge to pursue my education will be reduced. That means I can spend more time on my studies, research, extracurricular activities and volunteering,” said award recipient Marisa Brock. “Volunteering in the community that I grew up in has been one of my most valuable experiences. The scholarship will help cover unexpected expenses associated with college, as I will have to buy my first laptop, pay my orientation and wellness fees, and purchase class books. These additions will make it significantly easier to transition into college, and the aid provided by the scholarship will help me pursue my dream of becoming an oncologist,” said Alyssa Brookhart.

The program is open to applicants 25 years and younger who are in college, or are graduating high school seniors headed to college, and have completed 20 hours of volunteer service at CMM during the year. Assisting with the generous funding to allow for five recipient awards was the CMM Volunteer Council, CMMS Board of Directors, Patuxent Small Craft Guild, Canoe/Kayak Club, and the Solomons Island Model Boat Club (SIMBC). “We are absolutely thrilled that thanks to our generous donors this program has expanded from one to five scholarship awards in just a few years" said Volunteer Council Vice President Lowell Martin.
