Over the past year, DCTMA raised money for our 1st Annual Engineering Scholarship, which goes to a student enrolled in an engineering program at one of DCTMA’s member colleges or trade schools.
Our Engineering Scholarship Committee reviewed applicants’ essays and transcripts, and chose a Sophomore at Delaware County Community College. Adam Berridge of Glenolden was chosen this year to receive $1000 scholarship towards future education in engineering. The committee presented him with the check April 26th at the college.
DCTMA raised the scholarship money during several events, including a special night at Hedgerow Theatre during the debut of the play Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. All proceeds from ticket sales and a special raffle went to the scholarship.
We’ve already begun brainstorming new ideas for next year’s fundraising effort!
