Nine Students Earn Hanna Scholarships for Legislative Internships

Students with the Hanna Family and University Administrators

Salisbury, MD---Nine Salisbury University students are working as legislative interns in the Maryland General Assembly this spring, thanks in part to the Henry H. “Buddy” Hanna Memorial Award.

Established by Henry H. Hanna III and his wife, Dara, the scholarship is designed to help students develop their passion for government, politics and community affairs. It is named in honor of Hanna’s father, a longtime Eastern Shore legislator.

At a recent luncheon with this year’s recipients, Hanna told them about his father’s years of service.

The student interns are: senior Richard Arnold of Reisterstown, MD, who is working for Delegate Dana Stein; senior Colin Buzzerd of Bowie, MD, who is working for Senator Nathaniel McFadden; senior Gloria Chibueze-Azinge of North Potomac, MD, who is working for Delegate Adelaide Eckardt; sophomore Stephen Craig of Millersville, MD, who is working for Delegate Norman Conway; senior Theodore Cusimano of Queenstown, MD, who is working for Senator E.J. Pipkin; senior Leah Edwards of Baltimore, who is working for Delegate Susan McComus; sophomore Daniel Feeney of Old Greenwich, CT, who is working for Delegate Wayne Norman; senior Hannah McCartan of Rising Sun, MD, who is working for Delegate Glen Glass; and senior John Plinke of Greensboro, MD, who is working for Delegate Benjamin Barnes. All are political science majors.

The scholarship was established by a gift from the Hanna family to the SU Foundation, Inc., in 2007. They hoped it would help students from Salisbury and the Eastern Shore who face additional travel or living expenses while working in the state capital. SU juniors and seniors who are working as legislative interns and have a minimum 3.0 GPA are eligible.

The SU Foundation was created in 1973 to accumulate funds by gift and investment to enhance the University. Since then, it has enriched the academic growth and physical expansion of SU through the support of student scholarships, faculty research, new facilities and community outreach. This year, it celebrates 40 years of encouraging educational excellence.
