College receives donation from Rising Sun Chamber
— The Rising Sun Chamber of Commerce recently donated $ 2,000 to the Cecil College Foundation to support the Rising Sun Chamber of Commerce Scholarship.
The scholarship, which was origi-
nally called the Rising Sun Business Association Scholarship, was renamed a year ago to the reflect the organization’s new name. The scholarship was established in 1999 for students in a business- related degree program to help foster future business leaders in the area.
The mission of the Rising Sun Chamber of Commerce is to promote commercial and business prosperity in Rising Sun and its surrounding communities and to promote growth and development of business and profes- sional ser vices, both large and small, with respect to improving both commercial and residential conditions.
The chamber is able to create and fund the scholarship through fundraising events such as Rising Sun Sunfest and the Rising Sun Health Fair.
