Two Baltimore City high school students have been named recipients of the Maryland Science Center’s annual Dr. H. Bentley Glass Scholarship. Tricia Lalloo and Shawdae Frederick, both students at Digital Harbor High School, were each awarded $1,500 scholarships and a paid summer internship at the Maryland Science Center.
Created in 1965, the Dr. H. Bentley Glass Scholarship honors Baltimore City high school students who intend to pursue post-secondary science, technology, engineering or mathematics education at a two or four-year college or university. Recipients are recognized for their academic commitment and achievement in the sciences, outstanding character and perseverance, and financial need.
“Tricia and Shawdae’s strong interest in, and dedication to, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education reflects the values that the Glass Scholarship encourages,” said Van Reiner, President and CEO of the Maryland Science Center. “We are proud to honor them for their achievements and are happy to help in preparing them for future success.”
