The Tilghman Watermen’s Museum is pleased to announce it has awarded not one, but two $1,000 scholarships, to two 2019 graduates of St. Michaels Middle High School who are from Tilghman. Both students met the academic criteria for the scholarship, but also in keeping with the museum’s mission, the two awardees both have watermen’s roots backgrounds and have chosen to further their education in careers that will benefit their community.
Taylor Lyons will be attending the North American Trade Schools with a focus on Diesel Technology. Jozie Wilson will attend Chesapeake College with an Allied Health Focus and plans to finish a degree at Salisbury University with a major in Respiratory Therapy. Both plan to live and work in the Bay Hundred Area. Congratulations Taylor and Jozie, we are honored to recognize your achievements and help you in your pursuit of higher education.
The Tilghman Watermen’s Museum is dedicated to the vision of celebrating, documenting, preserving and sharing the history, traditions, heritage, and culture of Tilghman Island.
