Aberdeen High School Science National Honor Society Gives Donation to Harford Glen
The Aberdeen High School Science National Honor Society recently donated $1,000 to the Harford Glen Environmental Scholarship program. The students raised funds for the program by selling Aberdeen High School spirit items and holding a pancake breakfast fundraiser. Mrs. Linda McDonough, science teacher at the Science and Mathematics Academy and Harford County’s 2015 Secondary Green Teacher of the Year, and Mrs. Amber Milnes, science department chair at Aberdeen High, advise the Science National Honor Society. This is the second year that the Aberdeen chapter has contributed a full scholarship donation to Harford Glen.
The Environmental Scholarship program has granted scholarships to Harford County students since 1972. To date, more than $230,000 has been awarded to graduating seniors who are pursuing an environmental or other related science field degree. Students selected for the scholarships are honored at the Green Awards reception at Harford Glen in May.
The donation was presented to Mr. Howard Eakes, assistant supervisor of Science, at the February meeting.
The Environmental Scholarship committee thanks the Aberdeen High School Science National Honor Society for their generous donation and support of the scholarship program.
