Atlantic Cape Names Marjorie Ward Scholarship Winners

August 10, 2011

Atlantic Cape Community College selected two Cape May County high school students to receive full-tuition Marjorie Ward Leaders Scholarships. The students will enroll in Atlantic Cape classes this fall.

The winners are: Elizabeth Brown of Erma, Lower Cape May Regional High School; and Nicholas Sedberry of Petersburg, Ocean City High School.

The Atlantic Cape Community College Foundation established the scholarship program in 2005 in honor of former Cape May County resident Marjorie Ward, who left $500,000 to Atlantic Cape. Under terms of her will, Atlantic Cape created an endowment to fund scholarships for Cape May County students. These students will receive full tuition to the college for two years, leadership skills training and support from the college’s Office of Student Services.

Ward was a retired educator who passed away in 2004 at the age of 105. She taught for many years in the Montclair school system and retired in 1958 to Cape May.

Atlantic Cape’s full-service Cape May County Campus is located on Cape May Court House-South Dennis Road. The three-story, nearly 68,000-square-foot facility features a brick façade and two wings that house an information commons. The campus provides support services facilities, including counseling, testing, tutoring and financial aid offices as well as administrative offices.
