Rep. Bartlett to offer 5 scholarships in Carroll

U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett will use $10,000 from his congressional salary to award five $2,000 college scholarships to Carroll County students who will major in mathematics, science or engineering.

Joseph D. Mish Jr. of Sykesville, a member of the county Board of Education, chairs the selection committee. Other members are county Sheriff John Brown, Tom Bowen of Sykesville, Bradley Duggan of Mount Airy and Helen Totura of Westminster.

Mr. Bartlett, a Republican elected in November to represent Maryland's Sixth District, pledged during his campaign to use $60,000 of his $133,000 salary for scholarships.

The $60,000 will be divided among students in the six counties in his district.

Scholarship candidates must be Carroll residents and have been accepted at an accredited school in an associate's or bachelor's degree program. Candidates must have a 3.0 overall grade-point average and a 3.5 average in math and science.

Winners will be chosen based on academic achievement, extra-curricular activities and financial need.

Application forms are available at guidance departments at Carroll's five high schools and at the financial aid offices at Carroll Christian School, Carroll Community College and Western Maryland College.

The deadline to apply is April 15.

Information: Mr. Mish, (410) 795-0917.

Part of Route 27 to be improved by SHA

The State Highway Administration has announced resurfacing and safety improvements to be done on Route 27 from Route 144 to Leishear Road in the Mount Airy area in late March.

The approximately three-mile project will include installation of 1,600 feet of guard rails and various drainage, ditch and gutter work.

The work will improve road durability and enhance driver safety, say highway officials.

Because of the work, lane closures may occur during off-peak traffic hours from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Flagmen, signs and traffic cones will be used to direct motorists.

R. F. Kline of Frederick was awarded the $682,000 contract which has been delayed until this month due to inclement weather. The project is expected to be finished by late summer.
