The Frostburg State University Office of Admissions recently hosted its annual dinner for Outstanding Scholars. The scholars are high school seniors from Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania who were nominated by their guidance counselors based on academic achievement or talent in the arts.
There are three categories of Outstanding Scholars: finalist, semi-finalist and honorable mention. The finalists are awarded $3,000 annually if they attend a Maryland college or university.
All categories of distinguished scholars from Allegany, Garrett, Washington and Frederick counties and contiguous counties in W.Va. and Pa. who had applied to FSU were invited to the dinner at the campus Lane Center, along with their parents, guidance counselors and principals. The scholars were given a dictionary as a gift honoring them for their accomplishments.
