Thomas Stefany Wins $10,000 Scholarship

    Thomas Stefany of Davidsonville was named the Anne Arundel County winner in the 11th annual Northrop Grumman Engineering Scholars competition this year.  This program targets high school seniors intending to go into an engineering related field.
    Stefany received a merit-based scholarship of $10,000 during an awards reception and dinner hosted by Northrop Grumman on June 24 honoring students from the various Maryland counties.
    To be eligible for the scholarship competition, each  applicant had to have a minimum  SAT score of 1,700 or ACT score of 27, and a minimum GPA of 3.5. The selection committee, made up of Northrup employees, also took into consideration work experience, community involvement and extracurricular activities.  Thomas had an outstanding Eagle Scout project of mapping the All Hallows Cemetery which is described elsewhere in this blog. 
    Stefany intends to pursue a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering at Georgia Tech.
