One more week! March 29 is the deadline for nominations to be postmarked for receipt by the Garrett County Commission for Women for the Women’s Hall of Fame and for the Commission’s scholarships.
The Commission is seeking nominations for outstanding Garrett County women for induction into the Hall of Fame on May 4. Nominees should be women who are role models for tomorrow’s female leaders and who have made substantial or outstanding contributions to the economic, political, and cultural life of Garrett County. Both contemporary and historical women can be nominated.
The Commission also awards five general scholarships of $500 and one $5,000 scholarship. The general scholarships are for women who have lived in the County for at least 5 years, are at least 20 years of age and accepted into or attending an academic or vocational program. The $5,000 award is the Maureen R. Sharps Scholarship for similarly qualified women who are pursuing a degree in Education or a related field.
More information for both the Hall of Fame nominations and the scholarships is available on the Commission’s Facebook page and the website – gccw.info/scholarships. Or you can contact any Commission member or Scholarship Chair Lisa Thayer Welch.
