The Caves Valley Golf Club Foundation has established a five-year, $100,000 scholarship at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore for a student in the school's PGA Golf Management program. Demarkis Cooper (Oxon Hill) was named the first recipient. UMES is one of 18 schools to offer a PGA-approved degree in golf management, but the only historically black university with the program. The foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Owings Mills club, which hosted the LPGA's International Crown in late July.

To those who follow college athletics only casually, the announcement last week that the University of Maryland will henceforth award athletic scholarships on a multi-year basis instead of year-to-year may sound like a minor change. But in fact, it's a major reform that is not only welcome but is likely to attract a legion of imitators. From the effort to unionize athletes at Northwestern University as school employees (a year-long struggle that remains ongoing) to the legal fight over whether the NCAA can profit from the images of athletes in video games and elsewhere without compensating them, how colleges and universities treat athletes — or mistreat them — has sparked a pitched battle of late.

Maryland men's soccer coach Sasho Cirovski has seen more than a dozen of his players leave school early to pursue professional careers. The departures have often left Cirovski to wonder whether his former athletes would eventually come back to finish their undergraduate degrees. With a new program announced Tuesday by Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson, athletes in all of the school's sports will be able to return with their scholarships intact as long as they left the university in good academic and social standing.

When Howard Community College nursing student Danielle LaClair discovered that her tuition payment plan had been canceled, she didn't know what to think. As it turned out, the 28-year-old Ellicott City resident had no cause for worry. LaClair was among more than 1,300 students at the community college to receive a county government-funded scholarship designed to make college affordable for county residents in need. Howard Community College officials said the $2.5 million funding for the Pathway Scholarship Program is the largest one-time gift in school history, eclipsing the previous mark of $1.5 million from the Rouse Company Foundation in 2007.

When Sarah Suskind, 18, stopped by Long Reach High School with her mother, Shelly, on Thursday morning, she thought they were there to pick up a copy of her high school transcript. Instead, a secretary directed Suskind, a recent graduate, down the hall to the principal's office. Visibly confused, Suskind entered the office to find not the principal but her father, Steve Suskind, brother Spencer, Long Reach Assistant Principal Sam Richman, Howard County Public School System Chief of Staff Susan Mascaro and - perhaps strangest of all - Amy Colman, one of her elementary school teachers.

How about some good news for a change? Last month, I wrote about the kidnapping of nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls by a band of putative men who style themselves "Boko Haram" -- "Western Education is Forbidden. " Taken in concert with the 2012 shooting of Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan and the 2008 acid attack on Shamsia Husseini in Afghanistan, this latest outrage cements an impression that Islamic extremists are petrified of girls and what they might become with a little education.

Sometimes struggling to compete makes you a winner even without a trophy or ribbon. Congratulations to all who struggle in the race of life. You know who you are. Keep pressing on. The Amanda Post Memorial Fund was established to honor one who struggled and lived with enthusiasm.

This year's recipient of the $1,000 Hannah Hirsch Cohen Art Scholarship Award winner is a Bel Air High School artist, Gracie Rothey, of the Class of 2014. Rothey is on her way to The Pratt Institute of Brooklyn, N.Y., in the fall to study digital art and animation. Not only did Rothey's lovely portfolio express her skills as an artist, but her teacher's comments, grade point average and the essay she submitted as part of the application show that she is a worthy all around academic student with the drive and determination necessary to make the most of higher education, according to the award announcement.

Connor Joyce stood inside the Ravens' team locker room on Thursday morning, smiling and taking pictures in front of a locker with his name on it. A wrestling singlet and baseball and soccer jerseys hung on display in that locker, representing the sports Joyce, a senior, played at Broadneck. Joyce and 12 other high-school student athletes were invited to M&T Bank Stadium for a luncheon in their honor on Thursday. The 13 prep stars - four of whom are from the Baltimore metropolitan area - were awarded Minds In Motion Scholarships by the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association and Allstate Foundation.
