On Saturday April 13, PGCAR hosted the 8th Annual Maclin Fun Run. Over 100 runners and volunteers came out on a beautiful morning to run, walk, dance, mingle and network while, in turn, supporting the David and Juanita Maclin Memorial Scholarship Fund. We raised $5,108 for the Scholarship Fund!
The Prince George's County Association of REALTORS® instituted the David and Juanita Maclin Memorial Scholarship Fund in memory of REALTOR® David Maclin, the 2006 PGCAR President.
David and Juanita contributed to the economic development of Prince George's County, and they were key contributors to the growth and development of area churches. Their efforts were acknowledged by numerous awards, certifications, and special recognitions.
In addition to their service to the community, David and Juanita served the REALTORS® of Prince George's County and Maryland in many capacities. David was twice named REALTOR ® of the year by PGCAR and was named Maryland's REALTOR® of the Year posthumously in 2007, and his wife Juanita had served on PGCAR committees.
It is because of their many contributions to the community, that the Prince George's County Association of REALTORS® established the David & Juanita Maclin Memorial Scholarship Fund in 2008. Based on the theme "How I made a difference in my Community," the Scholarship Fund awards college scholarships to Prince George's County High School seniors who are actively engaged in their communities.
To date, the Scholarship Fund has provided over $80,000 in scholarships to students graduating from Prince George's County High Schools.
This year, through the Fund, four Prince George's County high school seniors were awarded $2,500 college scholarships to the college of their choice. Those receiving 2019 scholarships are:
- Alisa Evans of Gwynn Park High School, planning to attend Alcorn Unversity
- Jazlyn Beatriz Garcia of Bowie High School, planning to attend Stetson University
- Solomon Murphy of Duval High School, planning to attend Saint Vincent College
- Ryan Steed of Bishop McNamara High School, planning to attend Howard University
Application forms for the annual scholarship are typically available in early January, and due the last day of February. During that time period, applications can be found at Prince George's County high schools and at www.pgcar.com.
