Cecil College scholarship open

The family of William F. Burkley has made a $26,000 donation to Cecil College to create the William F. Burkley Scholarship.

His son John K. Burkley II and daughter Wendy Burkley Barry, and their spouses, Eileen M. Burkley and Martin J. Barry III, presented the money to the college for a need-based scholarship to be awarded annually to a student in a business-related major.

Scholarship money will be applied to tuition and fees, and any residual funds may be used for books or supplies at the college bookstore with donor approval.

William Burkley taught real estate classes at Cecil.

The family would like Cecil College to begin awarding the scholarship for the spring 2008 semester, which begins Jan. 22. Anyone interested in applying for the William F. Burkley Scholarship can call 410-287-1053.

Cecil College has announced that Cynthia Horton has earned the designation of Certified Nurse Educator after successfully completing a rigorous certification examination developed and administered by the National League for Nursing.

Horton, a professor of nursing at Cecil College since 1994, earned bachelor's and master's degrees at Widener University and a doctorate at Immaculata College.

During her time at Cecil, she has twice been listed in Who's Who Among America's Teachers.
