Bethany Redifer, a senior at Liberty High School, is the recipient of a $400 scholarship from the town of Sykesville.
The town awarded the scholarship as part of its membership in the Maryland Municipal League, which makes such awards possible to seniors for college tuition.
Town Councilman Michael H. Burgoyne will match the scholarship from his law office.
Bethany is an "A" student, vice president of the National Honor Society and active in her church. She has been accepted into the College Park Scholars program at the University of Maryland.
She plans to major in environmental studies.
