School board honors couple for giving 22 $1,000 scholarships

The Baltimore school board offered its appreciation last night to Harold and Magdalene Fennell for their generosity in awarding $1,000 scholarships to 22 city high school seniors.

Seven years ago, the Fennells pledged scholarships to a class of 31 students at Hilton Elementary School -- provided that the students graduate from high school.

Mr. Fennell is a retired city parks superintendent and Mrs. Fennell a retired city school principal. School board members said the couple followed the progress of the students and encouraged and inspired them to continue their education.
