The Rotary’s District 7620 Scholarship Committee under Chair Dr. Carl Schneider of Annapolis recently interviewed seven

Midshipman Frost has a grade point average of 4.00 and is a dual major in English and Mathematics. She intends to pursue a Master of Science in Operations Research with a track in Epidemiology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. The alternate for this award is Sara Hundt, sponsored by the Bethesda Rotary club.
Jasmine Hogan, from Midlothian, Va., who has a 3.81 grade point average at The Johns Hopkins University Peabody Conservatory, has won the $25,000 Ambassador Scholarship. This grant supports the goals of the Rotary International Foundation to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace.
Ms. Hogan is majoring in the Harp and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Baltimore. She speaks fluent Mandarin, has performed internationally, and plans to study Traditional Chinese Music in Beijing, China. Alternate for this award is Midshipman Connor Dunn, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Parole.
