WALDORF, Md. - The Greater Waldorf Jaycees and the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) invested in the future of more than 70 students by recognizing scholarship recipients during the seventh annual Scholarship Awards Breakfast on Oct. 21. The event, held at the Waldorf Jaycees Community Center, recognizes students, their families, and the donors who make the scholarships possible. Scholarship recipients are chosen based on recommendations, academic achievement, financial need and demonstrated potential for community leadership.
Dick Gregory, president of the Greater Waldorf Jaycees' Foundation, and CSM President Bradley Gottfried, presented the awards, including 11 renewal scholarships. Among those recognized were previous recipients Kristina Freeman and Shannon Speedling, who received special recognition for achieving the highest grade point averages.
The Waldorf Jaycees have been helping Charles County residents develop leadership skills through community service for 37 years. According to Gregory, Jaycee volunteers assist the community by providing aid to the elderly, helping the developmentally disabled, encouraging crime prevention and developing youth assistance and community support programs.
