2016 Scholarships:

The Greater Arbutus Business Association has provided scholarships to graduating high school seniors in recognition of their volunteer efforts on behalf of the community for many years. Last year we were pleased to honor three awardees who received grants.

Rosemarie McAuliffe – a Halethorpe resident, Rosemarie attended Mount de Sales Academy and planned to continue her education at Stevenson University last fall.

Thomas Meseke, III – Thomas lives in Arbutus and attended Catonsville High School and the CCBC as part of the parallel enrollment program. He planned to attend Towson University.

Patrick Nolan – a Lutherville resident, Patrick attended Dulaney High School. He planned to attend UMBC in the fall.

Students who receive the GABA scholarship award have typically volunteered for activities including the Arbutus Arts Festival, Community Clean-ups and the Arbutus Santa House.

We congratulate Rosemarie, Thomas and Patrick, and wish them all the best as they begin their college careers.
