Chapter Awards Thousands in Scholarships, Grants at Annual Awards Night

The chapter held its annual awards night in May to recognize its scholarship and grant recipients. More than 350 people attended the event. Jessica Morgenstern, chapter vice president, scientific education, presented 17 $10,000 scholarships to high school seniors pursuing STEM education at the college level starting this fall; three scholarships to local Maryland colleges and universities to which the chapter endowed funds for STEM scholarships; and one military scholarship to an enlisted service member pursuing a cybersecurity degree. The chapter's Joe Karolchik also issued 17 grants, worth $65,000, to K-12 schools in central Maryland. Each school received a grant of up to $5,000. During the networking reception before dinner, attendees participated in five demonstrations of how the K-12 schools are using STEM in the classroom. In addition, the chapter presented Sean McGowan, AFCEA International's director of member and chapter services, with a check for $25,000 for the AFCEA Education Foundation.
