  4. Scholarship Committee – Pastor Lorraine Brown has joint the committee.

Discussion was held on whether to designate a certain

amount of our scholarship funds to Carroll Community College Foundation and the

Frederick Community College Foundation.  The Community Colleges have students

apply for scholarships.  They have a need for funds.  It seems that those students

going to the community colleges do not apply for any of our scholarships.  This way

we can help support those who would stay in the community and add value to their

home town areas.  Jim Scales will reach out to Frederick to research their interest.

Ellie Bonde will review with Carroll.  It was voted to table this discussion until next

meeting when we will have the vote.
