R&P Program Scholarships Will Be Available

R&P Program Scholarships Will Be Available

At their Jan. 15 business meeting, the commissioners of St. Mary’s County accepted a transfer of funds of $44,000. The money represents remaining money for St. Mary’s County’s Juvenile Drug Court program.

The program, in existence for the past 14 years, is shutting down due to a reduced number of students in the program. Currently only two students are enrolled.

The Drug Court Advisory Committee wanted to find a worthy source for the money. The committee voted to give the funds to the St. Mary’s County Department of Recreation and Parks. The money will be used to provide scholarships to allow St. Mary’s County kids to participate in the department’s various programs. The money had previously been used to provide scholarships and occupational training.

“This is a wonderful gift for the youth of St. Mary’s County,” said Commissioner President Randy Guy. “It will allow some kids, who may not otherwise be able to afford recreation and parks’ program, an opportunity to take part without having to worry if they are able to afford it.”
