The Joanne Grossnickle Scholarship Committee of Union Bridge Church of the Brethren has awarded scholarships to nine college students for the 2012-13 school year. These scholarships bring the total amount awarded since 1985 to $116,850.

Michelle Miller, member of Union Bridge Church of the Brethren and the scholarship committee, presented the awards Aug. 5 during the morning worship service.

Recipients included six graduates of Francis Scott Key High School, one graduate of Walkersville High School and two graduates of Linganore High School.

FSK graduates receiving scholarships are: Drew Cashman, majoring in agriculture communications at Texas Tech University; Molly Devilbiss, majoring in psychology at Messiah College; Brittany Lethbridge, majoring in management/marketing at Hood College; Collins Lethbridge, majoring in accounting at Carroll Community College; Abigail Smith, majoring in music therapy at Carroll Community College; and Lukas Ziegler, majoring in agricultural education at Texas Tech University.

Walkersville High School graduate Emily Gardner, majoring in culinary/business at Johnson & Wales University, also received a scholarship.

Linganore High School graduates Michelle Clark, majoring in elementary education at Salisbury University, and Carissa Doody, a biotechnology/pre-veterinarian major at Virginia Tech, are also scholarship recipients.

Scholarship recipients were selected from applicants who have graduated from Francis Scott Key, Linganore or Walkersville high schools, or have membership or family ties to Union Bridge Church of the Brethren.

All candidates must have completed at least one year of college or post-high school education in pursuit of a degree. Applicants submit their high school and college grades, SAT scores, two letters of recommendation from professors and a personal essay.

The Grossnickle Scholarships are awarded each year to honor the memory of Joanne Grossnickle, daughter of Byron and Virginia Grossnickle, of Johnsville. Joanne Grossnickle was murdered in 1984 while working with an interdenominational task force dealing with violence against women. Since 1985, 146 students have received Grossnickle Scholarships.
