Education/Scholarship

Scholarship Offerings—Calvary Baptist Church has been blessed by the creation of two scholarships, established in memory of Calvary members who have gone on to receive their reward.  These scholarships will be awarded to those graduates who meet the criteria established by the loved ones who administer these funds.
 
The Vicky James scholarship will be awarded to a high school graduate who is pursuing a college degree in fashion design or human services.  The recipient must be a member of the Calvary Baptist Church. We are grateful to Deidre Johnson Mundell, Vicky's niece who has established this scholarship in memory of her Aunt Vicky, who preceded her in death in 2008.
 
The Candy Aiden scholarship will be awarded to a high school graduate who is pursuing a college degree from Morgan State          University in Business Administration.  The recipient must be a member of the Calvary Baptist Church. We are grateful to Angela, Candy's daughter, who has established this scholarship in memory of her mother who preceded her in death in 2014.
