Seven Future Sea Gulls Receive $1,000 Shore Scholarships

SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University recently surprised students at seven Maryland high schools with $1,000 Shore Scholarships.

In February and March, the SU Admissions Office hosted celebrations at James M. Bennett, Mardela, Parkside and Wicomico high schools in Wicomico County; Stephen Decatur High School in Worcester County; and Damascus and Sherwood high schools in Montgomery County, recognizing students admitted to SU for fall 2023.

At the end of each event, which featured chances to interact with SU staff and students, as well as Sammy Sea Gull, a drawing was held to award one attendee with a Shore Scholarship.

Winners included Chienfu Liao from James M. Bennett High School, Jacob Rekos from Mardela High School, Cailyn Klein from Parkside High School, J’Veona Ennis from Wicomico High School, Julia Carson from Stephen Decatur High School, Grace Petrousky from Damascus High School and Cameron Carlson from Sherwood High School.

“These scholarships are part of SU’s commitment to access and providing a quality education at an affordable price,” said Allen Koehler, SU associate vice president for enrollment management. “Most students from these schools likely are already familiar with SU in some fashion. Next fall, they will get to experience the campus in a whole new light as Sea Gulls.”

In all, more than 5,000 Maryland students have been admitted to SU for the fall semester.
