JACOB A. HOWSER MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS SELECTED

The Pocomoke City Volunteer Fire Company is pleased to announce that Angela Bolding and Zoe Rayne of Whaleyville are the recipients of this year’s Jacob Howser Memorial Scholarship Award. 
 

Angela Bolding is a Senior at Pocomoke High School where she was a member of the volleyball, softball and cheerleading squads. Angela currently is the Captain of the Cadet Corps of the Pocomoke City Volunteer Fire Company where she has served for the past two years and has been selected as Miss Fire Prevention for the Fire Company. Angela is currently enrolled in the Firefighter 1 training program and has been accepted to Wor-Wic Community College where she will start her educational track in the field of Emergency Services.


Zoe Rayne is a Senior at Stephen Decatur High School where she is a member of the National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society and has been an honor roll student throughout high school. She is on the varsity softball team where she has served as captain, plays travel softball and is a volunteer at her church. Zoe will be attending West Virginia University where she will pursue a degree in Physical Therapy.


Both Zoe and Angela state in their scholarship applications that they have been drawn to their respective career paths in order to help others and to give back to their communities.


The scholarship was established by the local community as a memorial to Jacob Howser, a member of the Pocomoke City Volunteer Fire Company as well as an EMS provider who tragically lost his life in March 2017 in a motor vehicle collision while traveling to paramedic training at Wor-Wic Community College. Howser, a 2011 graduate of Pocomoke High School, was awarded his Paramedic certification posthumously by the Maryland Institute of Emergency Medical Services System. The scholarship is intended to assist future medical providers and/or firefighters who share the same passion to help others as did Firefighter/Paramedic Jacob Howser.


The scholarship committee feels that Angela Boling and Zoe Rayne indeed share the same passion exhibited by Jacob and is honored to award this scholarship to both these deserving students. Each is wished much success in their post-secondary educational pursuits and respective career paths.
