College of Southern Maryland (CSM) President Dr. Maureen Murphy was on-hand to congratulate Leonardtown High School student Samuel Dichter when he was awarded a $1,500 scholarship by the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) April 30. The BOCC presented college scholarships to three high school students as part of the Calvert County Government Employee Recognition Committee’s (ERC) annual scholarship program. Dichter plans to use the scholarship to attend CSM in the fall.
Two dependents of Calvert County government employees and one high school senior employed by Calvert County Government receive scholarships each year. The annual scholarships are sponsored by the ERC with money raised through fundraising efforts conducted throughout the year.
CSM welcomes Dichter and congratulates the two other recipients recognized, Patuxent High School student Jacob Gill and Huntingtown High School senior Drew Moreland.
