Michaela Bell, 2019 Jim King Scholarship Winner
The 2019 Jim King Scholarship was awarded to Michaela Bell. Ms. Bell is a graduate of Calvert High School and one of the Club’s Outstanding Youth in our Youth Appreciation Week program in November 2018. The Jim King Scholarship is a four-year grant of $6,000 ($1,500 per year) provided to the runner-up in the Club’s Scholarship program. Ms. Bell was accompanied by her mom at our June 10th dinner meeting at Adam’s Taphouse and Grille to receive her first installment of the grant.
Michaela will be attending the University of Maryland-College Park this fall and is planning on majoring in Biology/Chemistry in anticipation of earning a degree in Medicine or Pharmacology. She hopes to work with a non-profit organization like Doctors without Borders or the Peace Corps after graduation. The Club and Foundation wish Michaela all the best in achieving her goals.
