Aberdeen resident Michaela Howell is the recipient of one of 14 scholarships awarded to Maryland state employees and their immediate family members by State Employees Credit Union, Maryland's largest financial cooperative. SECU established its State Employee Scholarship Program seven years ago. Since then it has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships. Participating students each wrote essays of 500-750 words discussing how young adults are learning to be financially responsible in a technologically evolving environment, and how those new technologies - such as EMV chips, Google Wallet, Near Field Communications, and others - are changing their own purchasing habits.

For the first two months of her Western High gym class, special education teacher LaDonna Schemm didn't notice. Then a freshman, the ever-bubbly Joy Keene-El would get out of her wheelchair and do everything thrown her way, from tennis to baseball to swimming. One day, when the physical fitness test came around, she did 61 pushups. But eventually an activity came that Keene-El said she couldn't do. And so an incredulous Schemm asked why not. "Look," Keene-El said, hoisting a pant leg. "I don't have any knees.

Towson University does it again! How in the world does SECU, a tax exempt credit union, have $4.7 million to purchase promotional naming rights to a university sports venue ( "Towson gets $4.75 million from SECU for arena naming rights," July 31)? As hard-working, tax-paying families and small businesses here in Maryland are faced with ever increasing taxes and fees - most recently a higher gas tax and tolls - this is beyond an insult in a state that pays lip service to helping the middle class and others.

Donald C. Fry, head of the group leading the search for Towson's next athletic director, said Thursday he hopes to have a new leader for the Tigers in place by the middle of August. "We're going through resumes now, so we're not in the final interview stages or anything like that," he said. "But our hope is to identify a person and have them transition into the role pretty quickly. In this field, quick movement is not that unusual and is considered part of the industry. " Fry, the president of CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee, would like to have a new athletic director in place for the start of the fall season but acknowledged the decision could be delayed for any number of reasons.

I belong to the SECU credit union, and quite frankly I'm disgusted that it will pay Towson University $4.75 million over the next 10 years to have the university's new basketball facility called SECU Arena (" Towson gets $4.75 million from SECU for arena naming rights," July 31). It appears that the SECU got too big for its britches (it has $2.6 billion in assets) and was looking for a place to throw its money away. Why weren't the members of the credit union given a vote before this decision was made?

Thousands of students and alumnae from Mercy and the Institute of Notre Dame spent the better part of an hour Friday night exchanging ear-ringing cheers, chants and renditions of their alma mater before an annual girls basketball game that has evolved into one of the largest high school events in the area. Once play began, however, only one side was left cheering at "The Game. " Trailing early, IND took command with 17 straight points, using its strong guard play and larger front line to keep Mercy scoreless for more than a quarter as it built a 21-point lead and held on for a 45-35 win before an announced 3,976 at Towson's SECU Arena.

Winning on the road is never as simple as it seems, as the Towson men's basketball team has learned. All six of the Tigers' (9-6) losses this season have occurred on the road, and Saturday's 81-79 win over Coppin State was their first road win of the season. As dire as the team's 1-6 record away from home might sound, coach Pat Skerry hopes those games have prepared his players for Colonial Athletic Association play, which begins Saturday at 2 p.m. when North Carolina-Wilmington (6-10)

Balloons fell from the SECU Arena rafters, the marching band moved to the beat of Green Day's rock anthem "Holiday," and the Towson men's basketball team's starting lineup was introduced under a spotlight at home for the first time in the program's 54-year history. The crowd roared in approval as the lights dimmed and the four-level scoreboard overhead pulsated, a moment that would have been impossible in the old Towson Center, which was retired in March. And between the black-and-gold bleachers of a $68 million arena, the Tigers faced more pressure than ever to prove that last season's luster wasn't merely fool's gold.
