2022-2023 Past Presidents' Heritage Scholarship
August 12, 2022
SCHOFIELD SCORES TOP SCHOLARSHIP
Victoria Schofield, a graduate of the Towson High School Law and Public Policy Program, is the winner of the 2022-2023 Past Presidents’ Heritage Scholarship. Victoria, who plans to attend Sweet Briar College in the Fall, scored first in a field of four highly competitive applicants, all of whom will receive scholarships funded by the St. Andrew’s Society Foundation.
The other scholarship recipients are Charles Brocato, who plans to major in Computer Engineering at Pennsylvania State University, Donovan Dartez, who will study Biology at the University of Miami, and Andrew McElwain, who will work toward a degree in Elementary Education.
Valuing education is one of the pillars of our Scottish heritage. (In Scotland today, resident Scots working on their first undergraduate study tuition free.) We are proud to see this year’s scholars carrying forward that tradition and pleased that the St. Andrew’s Society is able to assist them. Anyone wishing to support the scholarship program can make a donation or bequest designated for scholarships to The St. Andrew’s Society Foundation.
2022 Kirkin' o' the Tartan St. Anne's Episcopal Church Annapolis

After a long hiatus due to the recent epidemic, we have resumed our tradition of Kirkin' o' the Tartan. The Society gathered at St. Annes for the ceremonial blessing of representative tartans. As many will recall, this is primarily a North American tradition begun in 1941 to raise funds for British War Relief. Our next Kirkin' is scheduled for 20 November, 2022 at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in north Baltimore. Details will be forthcoming as the time approaches.
