On Tuesday, April 26, 2016, the Employee Recognition Committee (ERC) of the Calvert County Government awarded two scholarships to qualifying graduating seniors, whose parent or guardian is a Calvert County employee. They also award one scholarship to a qualifying, graduating senior, who is a Calvert County employee.
This year the following students were selected as winners:
