Character Counts awards Clark scholarships
EASTON — Character Counts Mid Shore awarded three A. James Clark Character Counts Citizenship Scholarships to recent high school graduates in Talbot, Caroline and Dorchester counties.

Sade A. Miller of North Caroline High School has 540 hours of volunteering throughout the community, including Compass Regional Hospice, Martinak State Park and Character Counts. She plans to major in social work at Potomac State College of West Virginia University this fall.
Morgan L. Biskach of Cambridge-South Dorchester High School has volunteered 805 hours throughout the community, including teaching swimming to youth, peer-tutoring, Sunday school and Baywater Animal Rescue. She is planning to attend University of Maryland, College Park this fall.

“Once again, Character Counts Mid Shore is honored to award the A. James Clark Scholarships in memory of Mr. Clark, a CCMS Founding Board Member,” CCMS Executive Director Susan Luby said. “He served his communities well, and we are grateful to the Clark Charitable Foundation for the opportunity to recognize these outstanding students with funding for higher education.”
