Sudlersville teen awarded scholarship
SUDLERSVILLE — Hamilton Relay, Telecommunications Relay and Captioned Telephone Service provider for the state of Maryland, has awarded a $500 college scholarship to Cassandra Blake, a student of Queen Anne’s County High School from Sudlersville.
The Hamilton Relay Scholarship opportunity is available to high school seniors who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or have difficulty speaking. A recipient is selected within each of the states where Hamilton is the contracted service provider and is one of several ways the company gives back to the communities it serves.
“Hamilton takes pride in recognizing outstanding leadership and promoting education,” said Renate Buttrum, Maryland Captioned Telephone Outreach Coordinator. “We are excited to have the opportunity to contribute to furthering Cassandra’s education and wish her success in reaching her personal and professional goals.”
Cassandra was awarded the $500 Hamilton Relay Scholarship after completing the application process, including writing an essay under the topic of communication technology. Cassandra plans to attend Salisbury University this fall to study Early Childhood Education.
