Support the Annapolis ESOL/NHS Scholarship Fund
Let’s invest in our future by celebrating and supporting the talent, brilliance and energy of our diverse community of students who have the ambition to seek out higher learning and education.
Join us on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 6 – 8:30 at the Byzantium on Riva Rd. for a silent and live auction of fine art, collectibles and antiques. This fundraiser to support the Annapolis ESOL/NHS Scholarship Fund. All proceeds from the auction will go to fund the scholarship.
There are currently 400 students in the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program of Annapolis High School, with a growing number of students graduating each year and eligible to pursue a college education. Of the many obstacles to higher education, money looms large for immigrants who are frequently first in their families to believe in the possibility of attending college. We are hoping this scholarship fund will help open the door to a higher education for those who are clearly qualified and may have thought the opportunity would be well beyond their reach.
Through a generous donation, this high quality and unique collection of art, furniture and antiques from South America, the Caribbean, and Maryland is being made available for the sole purpose of supporting this important scholarship. Many of the paintings, sculptures and collectibles have been professionally appraised and the documents will be available at the event.
The Annapolis ESOL/National Honor Society Annual Scholarship was established to encourage ESOL International Academy students at Annapolis High School to pursue studies at Anne Arundel Community College. ESOL faculty, students and the Annapolis High School Chapter of NHS participated in the initial funding and hope that the scholarship will assist students on their path to a bright future.
