*** Help Maryland Students Pay for College ***

(Full disclosure: Sonja is a board member of the Camp Fire USA Patuxent
Area Council.)

Maryland Delegate Smigiel is putting forth House Bill 206, which would
give a scholarship to Eagle Scouts and Gold Award winners that are
accepted into Maryland colleges.  There is currently an effort to gather
support from the scouting community to help persuade our legislators
that reaching that level of scouting is an achievement and that
recipients should have every chance possible to attend college. However,
while the Eagle Scout and Gold Award are both significant achievements,
the Camp Fire USA equivalent, the WoHeLo award, is not included and
requires the same amount of work and effort. I would like to encourage
everyone to contact the Maryland delegates to both support the bill and
add the Camp Fire USA WoHeLo award as a credential for the scholarship.
Any questions regarding this bill please contact Jesse Hartline at
Delegate Smigiel's office in Annapolis 410-841-3555. Additional
information on Camp Fire USA can be found at http://www.campfireusa.org/start.asp or http://www.campfireusa-patuxent.org/.
