2024 SU Shore Scholarship Winners Announced

By SU Public Relations

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

In March and April, the SU Admissions Office hosted celebrations at James M. Bennett, Mardela, Parkside and Wicomico high schools in Wicomico County; and Stephen Decatur High School in Worcester County, recognizing students admitted to SU for fall 2024.

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 Gavin Glover from James M. Bennett High School, Desireé Stanley from Mardela High School, James Choo from Parkside High School, Tatiana Baptiste from Wicomico High School, and Brooke Delahanty from Stephen Decatur 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.
