Museum awards scholarship

Karen Armacost, Museum board chair, greets Ashley Reinhardt, scholarship winner.

The  Museum is pleased to announce that Ashley Reinhardt, a recent graduate of Chesapeake High School in Baltimore County, has been awarded the museum’s first annual scholarship of $1,000.

Ashley lives in the Fullerton area of Baltimore County with her parents and twin sister, Sara. Ashley plans to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in the Fall and will major in photography. Faculty members describe Ashley as
outgoing, friendly, positive, determined, and a great role model for other students.

The museum initiated the scholarship in 2013 to demonstrate support for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education in the community.
Chesapeake High School has been designated a STEM academy. Ashley will be honored during the museum’s annual dinner and silent auction on Saturday, September 28, 2013 at the Sparrows Point Country Club.

The aviation museum plans to offer the scholarship again next year. During the selection process, preference will be given to a high school senior who has volunteered at the museum for six months or more.
