Maryland Students Awarded Scholarship

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Several West Virginia Wesleyan College students received scholarships from the Board of Beneficence of St. John’s Independent Methodist Protestant Church in the City of Baltimore, The St. John’s Board.

Created by an act of Maryland General Assembly in 1864 and originally financed with funds bequeathed to it under the will of John Clark, the St. John’s Board was formed “for the dispensing of charity judiciously, discreetly and in the benign spirit of the Master.”

Students awarded were Timothy Bristol of Gwynn Oak, sophomore physics major; Cierra Elmore of Baltimore, junior nursing major; freshman Shakira Graves of Capitol Heights; Delana Hill of Columbia, junior psychology major; freshman Charlie Jordan of Baltimore; Stephen McCallum of Brunswick, sophomore physics major; and Casey Rowland of Williamsport, senior chemistry major.
