Congratulations to our two recipients of the CCRTA Scholarship for 2018-2019.

Matthew Smith from Wilmington High School will also be attending Wilmington College majoring in exercise science and physical therapy. He is also going to play basketball for the Quakers.

There were 13 applicants this year and all were exceptional candidates. The scholarship committee had a difficult time deciding, but these two amazing young adults shared their passion and enthusiasm for learning. They both had outstanding attendance and were extremely polite! We believe the future of education is in good hands.

The scholarship committee was Joyce Kelly, Chairman, Harry Brumbaugh, Michelle Howell, Rick Kendall and Kathy Vincent.
