Aaron Turner of Easton was recently awarded the Workforce Training Scholarship by the Children’s Home Foundation, a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Easton.
A Chesapeake College employee for four years, Mr. Turner is a custodian with the Facilities Department. He has been taking Chesapeake classes for three years.
“We’ve found that nontraditional students like Aaron are a wonderful investment. They have clear goals and are highly motivated,” said Martha Austin, board member of the Children’s Home Foundation. “Through these scholarships, we can help individuals improve their lives and achieve their goals. We look forward to helping more students like Aaron.”
Mr. Turner, a 2010 Easton High School graduate, said the $1,350 scholarship will allow him to complete the Electrician Program in May.
“I’m grateful to have this help to finish my program. I’m learning valuable skills now that will give me opportunities,” Mr. Turner said.
