The Community Foundation of Washington County is proud to announce that Joshua Ernst of Clear Spring is the 2011 recipient of the Ryan Myers Memorial Scholarship. The scholarship was created in memory of Ryan Myers by his family, and is supported through contributions from the family, friends, and the proceeds from the annual Race For Ryan. The $1,000 per year renewable award is given to a student from any accredited public, private or home-school program in Washington County who demonstrates a solid Christian character. Mr. Ernst was selected from a pool of nearly three-dozen applicants who provided a statement of faith, pastoral recommendation, and a personal strategic plan. Joshua's application stood out not only for his authentic commitment to faith, but also for a sincere letter of recommendation from his pastor, Dennis Whitmore, of Hilltop Christian Fellowship. Joshua will begin his college career at Potomac State College in an agriculture related major.
The Ryan Myers Memorial Scholarship is one of many offered through the Community Foundation. To contribute to this fund, or for more information on creating or applying for scholarships, please call the Foundation at 301-745-5210.
