DCTMA Awards DCCC Student 1st Annual Engineering Scholarship
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.
Committee Chair, Steve Cunningham of Jacobs Engineering, reflects on the significance of the scholarship opportunity.
“The DCTMA founded the Engineering Scholarship to provide financial assistance to deserving students in Delaware County. The scholarship aims to enhance our transportation engineering and planning community through outreach and support of our educational institutions. The ideal candidate for selection demonstrates a keen interest in improving the transportation system in Delaware County through application of their studies,” he says.
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!
