County REALTORS® Award $10,000 in Scholarships
to High School Seniors
The Prince George's County Association of REALTORS®
(PGCAR), the county's leading advocate for real estate and private property rights, presented four Prince George's County high school seniors with $2,500 college scholarships through the Association's David Maclin Memorial Scholarship Fund.
The Fund and its accompanying "Fun Run
" are one of the Association's premiere community service endeavors. In honor of the late REALTOR®
David Maclin's contributions to Prince George's County, the fund recognizes a student's commitment to community service, based on the theme "How I Made A Difference In My Community."
"Community service plays an important role in building neighborhoods. These young people have demonstrated community spirit. For that, REALTORS®
are excited to help them attain their future goals," said PGCAR President, Desiree Callender.
"Seeing these high school students prepare for college with the assistance of the scholarship makes me so proud," commented Juanita Maclin, the Co-Chair of the Scholarship Committee and the wife of the deceased, David Maclin.
Those receiving 2015 scholarships are:
- Amber Nicole Braswell of the Academy of Health Sciences at PGCC in Largo, is planning to attend Towson University.
