Congratulations to Baltimore Times Interns and Morgan State University SCOM Majors Justus Hawkins and Mori Johnson who were honored by The Visit Baltimore Foundation at its annual meeting at M&T Bank Stadium.
Although notified last month about the award, today they were acknowledged before a crowd of 500 leading citizens of Baltimore including: The Hon. Mayor Young with whom they are photographed, Baltimore Ravens President Dick Cass, Baltimore Orioles President John Angelos and a host of other glitterati.
There were more than a dozen applications for the scholarships totaling $10,000. Mori and Justus took home $2,500 each. The other two scholarship students are graduate students (also from Morgan) but who are studying hospitality and tourism. Mori and Justus are the first SCOM students awarded this scholarship. They were selected based on their writing and quality of their applications.
