Four students selected for scholarship program

Howard Community College has announced the first recipients of a scholarship fund established by the Amerix Corp. of Columbia, the Amerix 21st Century Fund, to help low- and moderate-income students take job training courses.

Winners are Luxie Gannon, Michele Williams and Linda Chiaverini of Columbia and Suzanne Sanders of Laurel.

The women are enrolled in the college's Patient-Care Technician course, which prepares students to work in entry-level hospital positions.

Amerix will also establish a mentoring program in which each student will be matched with an Amerix employee who will help them prepare for the workplace.
