The Prince George鈥檚 County Association of Realtors (PGCAR) awarded $10,000 in college scholarships to deserving high school graduates.

Through the realtors David and Juanita Maclin Memorial Scholarship Fund, named in memory of PGCAR鈥檚 2006 president, David Maclin, and his wife, Juanita, the fund awarded four $2,500 college scholarships. The Maclins contributed to the economic development of Prince George鈥檚 County and were key contributors to the growth and development of area churches.

Their efforts were acknowledged by numerous awards, certificates, and special recognitions. Their many contributions to the community led to the association establishing the scholarship fund in 2008, according to a news release.

Receiving a scholarship is based on the quality of community service, as opposed to academic or athletic pursuits, said Donald Frederick, chair of the scholarship committee.

There were 34 entrants for the scholarship fund. The winners were Enoch Omotayo of Flowers High School who is planning to attend Morehouse College; Kristina Winn of Academy of Health Sciences of Prince George鈥檚 Community College planning to attend Bowie State University; Adenike Aderbigbe of Wise High School planning to attend the University of Maryland, College Park; and Kalen Wright of Northwestern High School, headed to Towson University.
