Dear NCHS Alumni Scholarship Fund,


I would like to thank the donors and the committee for choosing me as one of the recipients of this scholarship.  This fund will help a great deal for my family, and myself as I will be attending UMBC this upcoming fall to pursue a major in Information Systems.  This community has helped me so much throughout my journey, and I can not truly thank you enough.  My goal is to one day be able to return the favor, and give back to the community as much as it has given to me.  I am truly grateful for the support as a enter a new chapter in my life.


Thank you so much,

Kevin Dang

Dear NCHS Alumni Scholarship Fund,


It is with great appreciation and humility that I write to you today.  I would like to take a moment to express how grateful I am to have received the NCHS Alumni Scholarship.  I have worked very hard in my years at North County in order to achieve the goals that I have set for myself and my future.  This scholarship will help a great deal in reaching those goals.  I would like to extend a sincere and personal thank you to each of the donors and members of the Committee.  As I attend Randolph Macon College next year I begin my journey towards becoming a successful, responsible, and generous adult who will achieve all that I work towards and repay all the help that I receive along the way.

Dear NCHS Alumni Scholarship Fund,


I am writing to you today to express my immense appreciation for being chosen to receive this scholarship. I would like to personally thank each member and donor of the NCHS Alumni Committee for their generosity and for the great deal of aid this fund has provided me. Throughout my years at NCHS, I realized the impact my community has had in shaping my goals for my future. In studying Government and Political Science at University of Maryland - College Park, I will remain dedicated to assisting my community and hope to reciprocate all generosity that has been shared with me.

Update from Joe Landgraf, NCHS ‘11

NCHS Alumni Scholarship Recipient


Currently, I am in my second year of graduate school, getting my Master's Degree in History from Villanova University. At Villanova, I am a graduate assistant and have been working as an undergraduate teaching assistant for a course on the U.S. Constitution. Prior to attending Villanova, I graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park in May 2015 with two degrees: B.A. in History and a B.A. in Secondary Social Studies Education. I graduated certified to teach in MD, student taught at Montgomery Blair High School in Montgomery County, and after graduating from Villanova next spring, intend on returning to MD to teach high school social studies.


This past summer, as part of my James Madison Memorial Fellowship (which is helping to fund my MA program), I took a 6 credit course on the U.S. Constitution at Georgetown University that included field trips all around DC. One of the more special opportunities was meeting Secretary of Education John King, Jr., a former Madison fellow himself. The James Madison Memorial Fellowship is awarded to 1-2 secondary teachers per state per year who are seeking their Master's in History or Education and who want to incorporate a greater knowledge-base of the Constitution into their classroom.
