13 June 2013 2013 Valentine Memorial Scholarship Recipient Selected
Syrena Bracey of Clinton, Maryland has been awarded the 2013 Valentine Memorial Scholarship by The Foundation, a 501© non-profit organization that serves and supports the communities in which Towne Park associates live and work. Syrena’s father, Scott Bracey, has been a valued associate for over three years with Towne Park.
The annual Valentine Memorial Scholarship provides one student – a Towne Park employee or immediate family member – with an undergraduate college tuition scholarship, renewable for up to four years. With assistance from Educational Testing Service’s Scholarship and Recognition Programs, The Foundation selects the winner by assessing applicants’ financial need, academic standing and their embodiment of the ideal Valentine scholar.
“We had a record year with over 60 applications!” said Jackie Harris-Harrell, Towne Park’s Vice President of Diversity Inclusion and Scholarship Program Coordinator for The Foundation. “It’s obvious that Syrena is a very special person. Her application stood out due to her many academic achievements, volunteer activities at school and in the community and her awesome sense of humor!”
After completing her high school education, Ms. Bracey will enter her first year of college at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County this fall, pursuing her love of science as a Chemistry and Pre-Med major.
