Titus receives scholarship

Andrew Titus

Andrew Titus, a recent graduate of Westminster High School, was named the Carroll County winner in the 11th annual Northrop Grumman Engineering Scholars competition.
The statewide scholarship program is aimed at supporting promising high school seniors who intend to pursue a career in an engineering-related field.
A committee of Northrop Grumman employees selected the Engineering Scholars winners. To be eligible, each scholarship applicant had to be a Maryland resident and a graduating senior this spring from a public or accredited private high school in the state. Applicants also had to have a minimum composite SAT score of 1,700 or ACT score of 27 and a minimum grade point average of 3.5. The committee also took into consideration work experience, community involvement and extracurricular activities. Recipients of any other Northrop Grumman-sponsored scholarship were not eligible.
Scholarship recipients from 23 Maryland counties and Baltimore received merit-based scholarships of $10,000, payable in $2,500 installments over four years.
"These talented students represent the future of our country's technology and innovation capability," said Gloria A. Flach, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman's Baltimore-based Electronic Systems sector.
Titus and the other recipients were recognized during an awards reception and dinner hosted by Northrop Grumman June 24 at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel.
Titus intends to pursue degrees in electrical engineering and computer science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
