— Joined by Ce­cil Col­lege Pres­i­dent Mary Way Bolt and mem­bers of the Ce­cil Col­lege Foun­da­tion staff, in­clud­ing Chris Ann Szep, vice pres­i­dent of in­sti­tu­tional ad­vance­ment and govern­ment re­la­tions; John Beck, direc­tor of foun­da­tion and alumni de­vel­op­ment; and Mary Moore, de­vel­op­ment co­or­di­na­tor; stu­dent Emily Mulc­ahy re­cently at­tended an Upper Bay Ru­ri­tan Club meet­ing to thank her donors for as­sist­ing with her ed­u­ca­tion.

Mulc­ahy, who is study­ing to be a nurse, is one of 10 Ce­cil stu­dents to be awarded $ 1,000 from the Upper Bay Ru­ri­tan Schol­ar­ship this year. Ini­ti­ated in 2007 with a found­ing gift of $ 2,000, the Upper Bay Ru­ri­tan Schol­ar­ship pro­vides schol­ar­ships for grad­u­ates of Bo­hemia Manor High School to at­tend Ce­cil Col­lege.

Over the last eight years, 65 Ce­cil stu-

dents have re­ceived more than $ 56,000 from the schol­ar­ship.

“Our stu­dents are so thank­ful for this schol­ar­ship, which makes a tremen­dous dif­fer­ence in their lives,” Bolt said. “We can’t do what we do and our stu­dents can’t have a fu­ture with­out donors.”

Serv­ing the south­ern area of Ce­cil County, the Upper Bay Ru­ri­tan Club’s pur­pose is to cre­ate a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing among peo­ple and, through vol­un­teer com­mu­nity ser­vice, make Amer­ica’s com­mu­ni­ties bet­ter places to live and work. The slo­gan of Ru­ri­tan is “Fel­low­ship, Good­will and Com­mu­nity Ser­vice.”

The Ru­ri­tans raise money for any­one in need within the com­mu­nity by host­ing dif­fer­ent events through­out the year, in­clud­ing two spaghetti din­ners, an Easter flower sale, car­ni­val raf­fle ticket sales, a gun raf­fle, and a gift card raf­fle.
